Google News Serving Up Video With Their Search Results

Google News has recently announced that video search results will now be included with a Google News search. The announcement also included a tantalizing but limited list of sources used, among them CBS and Reuters. (More are expected to be added.) The new feature is currently available only for the US, UK, and Ireland (and not Canada? Odd…)

There’s a little icon next to video results, and they’re included as a supplemental link at the bottom of a news story. I must say, I had a hard time finding video results, even browsing the top stories. Maybe I’m picking bad keywords.

I suppose that the next logical step will be to take the new comments that Google recently announced, and open that for videos (on YouTube) of people talking about a particular story….
