If you look at Google News a year ago, you will notice they said they had "4,500 news" sources. Now, if you visit Google News today, you will see they have 25,000 news sources.

Google News Explodes

I do not know when Google changed that number, but I believe it was some time in the recent past.

I know publishers are constantly being added as sources to Google News but to explode from 4,500 sources to 25,000 sources in a year? Wow, that is pretty impressive. Does quality suffer? I am not sure.

Not really right ... Google news just "switched" back to the "hole" newssource worldwide. example: last year in germany google news had 700 sources (only german sources) today it has 25.0000 sources too (worldwide) ;)
