Where do InEDC News Stories Come From?
Over the past year many people have asked where the stories published on In El Dorado County (InEDC) come from and how we compile them. There have even been rumors that most of them come from the local newspaper. So we went back and looked at the source of the stories from May 1 to May 26 2013.
In the first 26 days of May, 2013, InEDC published 269 stories from over 100 sources.News aggregation websites
News aggregation websites started with sites like the Drudge Report, NewsNow, Breitbart.com and the Huffington Post, where content was still entered by humans. Sites such Google News, on the other hand, are based on algorithms filling the content from a range of either automatically selected or manually added sources. Examples of this sort of website are Google News, Newsvine and World News Network, where aggregation is entirely automatic, using algorithms which carry out contextual analysis and group similar stories together, and JockSpin, which aggregates and categorizes most headlines automatically, but supplements with manually curated headlines as well as its own articles.
The remaining 29% were written and/or published by various organizations and individuals including:
