Google News gets its knickers in a twist

Posted by Emma Woollacott

Google News is outsourcing to the Ministry of Silly Walks.

Checking the sci/tech section of the site this morning, we were surprised to discover that the top US science story was something about the Pakistani cricket team and ball-tampering.

Shortly afterwards, we were informed that there's currently a rise in 'mass religion-related incidents' in China.

And as the East Coast was just waking up, the twelfth most important US tech story was apparently a press release entitled Incontinence Products in Japan.

Are they taking the piss?
