The Science of News Linking

An interesting piece from USC's Annenberge Online Journalism Review delves into the scientific world of Google and Yahoo News' methods. Google uses algorithms, Yahoo uses people. Google yields more second-tier, screed-ish results, but it's all a language game. Yahoo is a one-stop, content site. Either way - this piece is an interesting peek at what exactly happens when you click "search."
