News Map: Finding the World's News by Location

As you all know, I like reading the news from around the world. I have previously shared posts about Newseum (post) and Mapeas (post), but I would like to add another news source that helps you search for the news by location. News Map simple combines Google Maps and Yahoo News and all you have to do is select a region from the tabbed menu (or by zooming in and out and by using the direction arrows)  then click on a country to see a list of current news stories. For some larger countries you can further refine your search by state, province, or city (over 3,000 large cities in the data base).
