The tag line for NewsExplorer from Europe Media Monitor (a service of the Joint Research Centre of the European Union) is “daily news analysis, across languages and over time.” You can use it on many levels: just as a search engine—in one of a dozen languages; to locate articles on a specific person; to read articles about the same news event in various languages; or to see a visual representation (news cluster) for a subject on one day. You get variant spellings, photos of a personality, lists of related articles, countries, and organizations. You can even map information on Google Earth and sign up for an RSS feed. It is a fascinating site.
