Google News Layer for Google Earth coming soon...

Lior Ron, Product Manager of Google Maps, made several Google Maps announcements in his talk today (more details tomorrow). One thing he announced, is a plan to release a Google News layer for both Google Earth and Google Maps (in the new "More..." layer option for Google Maps). Google News aggregates news from thousands of news sources all over the world.

Google joined up with the New York Times and released just over a month ago the first built-in live updating layer of news from the NY Times in Google Earth. Now they have apparently determined some ways to get geospatial information for a wide range of news sources and will release this new layer - according to Lior Ron - in about a week. It will be interesting to see how they highlight each news agency's content and attribution in this new layer. I assume you'll have to link back to their web page to read the full stories.
