Google has shown an affinity for Wikipedia for years, often listing entries as a top source for many types of web searches. Now they’ve added links to Wikipedia pages with news stories on Google News. This seems like a small detail, but it gives Wikipedia even more credibility with the most popular search engine.
Google News already gets news from both traditional media like major newspapers, CNN and Reuters (though the AP hates this fact), as well as new media (popular news blogs like Marketing Pilgrim). There are also links to YouTube videos. This further blends how we get news and what is credible.
