News Aggregators

Searchable sites which compile news stories...


  • Bing News
    Microsoft's answer to Google News. It's a bit less busy and perhaps a bit easier to look at - take a look and decide for yourself.
  • Google News
    It's news compiled by Google. Search it, read it, see international versions...
  • Yahoo News
    Competing with Google & Bing, Yahoo compiles it's own list of top stories, and it's always interesting to see who rates what as the topic to feature on any given hour or day.
  • International News | Global News from Around the World
    Online since Jan. 2009, globalpostbills itself as "A New Voice for Global News." With a heavy social/political focus, the site is arranged by world regions (the Americas, Asia, Africa, Middle East, and Europe), and features images, news stories, videos and audio content as well as blogs and RSS feeds.
