Google News Initiative promises: “YouTube search will now include links to news article during breaking news cycles” Plus, a map.

Latest from GNI:

When we announced the Google News Initiative, we also made a commitment to increase the integrity of the information we display during breaking news events. Today we announced several new YouTube features to prominently surface authoritative sources to viewers. To bridge the gap of time it takes to produce high-quality video when news breaks, in the United States, YouTube search will now include links to news article during breaking news cycles. In addition, we’re rolling out the “Breaking News” section on YouTube’s homepage and the “Top News” shelf in search results, which highlight videos from credible news organizations, to many more countries. And YouTube is expanding viewers’ access to local news—the most trusted source of news—across different markets in the U.S.

 

Playing with Google Maps. Here, I am trying to figure out how to change the color on all the place markers at once.
