When Google News debuted last year, news rating service Newsknife questioned whether it would perform better than news sites with life editors. After a year, the site reports that live editors still pick the top stories most often. The survey found that Google News picked the top stories 63% of the time, versus 77% for live editors. Seems to me it should be lot higher for the human being, don’t you think?
Newsknife also says there are a lot of things to like about Google News.
