Google news timewarp

Google news timewarp: Late yesterday, about 6:30 p.m., central time, I noticed that the lead story on Google News was from August 22 about fighting continuing in Al-Najaf. The secondary story was about the surrender of the Imam Ali shrine. I cleared my cache and tried again. On the left (larger version) is a screen grab of the time-jumping page. Makes one second-guess letting algorithms be in charge of what is timely and newsworthy.
