Yahoo Inc. has announced the expansion of its News Search System. The new search system will include pictures and related web links contributed by users and bloggers. According to Yahoo, this combination of professionally edited reports and those of novice reporters will augment the sources of information.
A three-tier system has been created by Yahoo to find new items. The top ten stories and related pictures will be those produced by mainstream news organizations, and will be available on the primary Yahoo News website.
Users and readers looking for a detailed report need to go to the secondary level news site. This webpage consists of news items from 6,500 professional sources and hyperlinks to millions of blogs from its syndication service.
In short, this whole process of news searching is an amalgamation between a professionally edited version of the news and self-publishing. Knowledgespeak.com 10/13/05 http://www.knowledgespeak.com/news.asp#5
