Google Adds Participant Comments to Google News

Google, Inc. has added a new, experimental feature on the Google News home page. It has added a mechanism for publishing comments from a special subset of readers: those people or organizations who were actual participants in the story in question. Comments are published in full, without any edits, but they are marked as "comments" so readers know it is the individual’s perspective, rather than part of a journalist’s report. This feature is now available only in the U.S., but, based on how things go, it will be expanded to other languages and editions.

All comments published are "on the record" statements made by the commentator. Google employees verify the commentators’ identities and then allow them to say whatever they’d like about the story. Google said it would not publish comments that include hate speech, calls to violence, or other offensive statements. Comments will be available in Google News for the usual 30 days. They may later be made available through the Google News Archive.Source: Google, Inc.
