Google News Stand Damage

This morning, I was doing some news queries and noticed that, sporadically, the Google News tab was not returning results for some queries. I thought it was just me and I moved on - but it was not just me - others are also seeing the Google News tab not working.

Google News tab, some portions of the Google News home page, some Google Discover home page feeds and some of Google Trends are not working.

Here is a screenshot of the news tab within Google Search responding with "Your search - google news - did not match any news results."

Here is a screenshot of the Google News home page:

Update: At about 9:35am ET, the Google News services seem to be returning, at least for me...
