Google News hosts it's own wire stories

In a move that makes google news much more usable google is now hosting their own wire stories from the AP and such. This means that google is now redirecting such stories to their own pages and filtering out repeat results. The main benifit in this is that the site will no longer get swamped by AP stories in which nearly ever paper online reposts the exact same story, burying all but one or two other results. In addition google's page for hosting the stories is much more clean then that of the typical online newspaper. Reuters news is not included, but hopefully google news will filter out any repeats of that and link to only lets hope the filter works as good as it should...
