The Drum: Google inadvertently silences news publishers during weekend glitch

Apparently Google kicking a bunch of publishers off Google News was a glitch. From The Drum: “From late Sunday publishers began finding that their news websites were being removed from the platform, sparking alarm among long-standing contributors. Blaming the silencing on ‘an unintentional technical error’ Google’s engineers worked swiftly to rectify the situation with most issues resolved by the end of the day, although some reported ongoing issues through Monday.”
