Google News Lets Newsmakers Comment on Stories

Beginning this week, Google News will start posting user comments, but only from people actually featured in news stories. Newspapers that were unhappy about Google News using snippets of their articles will probably be even less pleased to see the new feature deployed, since Google could become an even more formidable player when it starts hosting original content. People or organisations that are mentioned in news stories can submit comments to the Google News team, which will then display those comments — unedited — alongside the Google News links to those stories. The new system will at first be deployed only within the US, but Google is open to expanding it to other regions if the trial goes well
