Philipp Lenssen writes: Google News now allows individuals or organizations who are mentioned in news stories to add comments. (I've posted some screenshots.) "Our long-term vision is that any participant will be able to send in their comments, and we'll show them next to the articles about the story. Comments will be published in full, without any edits, but marked as 'comments' so readers know it's the individual's perspective, rather than part of a journalist's report," Google writes in the official Google News blog. Comments (for the US version of Google News only, right now) need to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and will then be manually approved to verify that the sender is indeed who they claim they are. You can check out a live example at Google News.
