As of today, Google News is looking to empower those affected by libel, or defamation by the written word.
Bloggers have been given the freedom to write about whatever they want, but Google has answered the complaints of those affected by slanderous comments. If Google News publishes something that puts an individual's or company's reputation at stake, Google will let them respond with their side of the story. Their comments will be available via links next to the original story on the Google News page.
This week is a just a trial of the feature; if Google is happy with the results, it could be there to stay.
