Transparency in GoogleNews

Following up on earlier concerns, Jeff Jarvis reports that GoogleNews is including news articles from the far-right British National Party.

While I have previsouly disagreed with Jeff that certain “news” is inherently more valid than other “news” for inclusion in news aggregation services like GoogleNews, I do agree with him that Google needs to be more transparent about how sites are selected and ranked within the GoogleNews service.
