Newser Launches “NY Times in 60 Seconds”

Jun 13, 2008

The New York Times now provides summaries of its own stories. Newser, the online news synthesizer, will be pulling the "must-read" stories and giving a summary of each, housed in a NY Times grid you can scan in 60 seconds. Newser also launches "Best of the Glossies" and "Pundit Watch"—new grids featuring the day’s best magazine stories and opinion pieces from all over the Web. Newser adds local news streams for more than 70 U.S. markets and another 16 international English-speaking cities using RSS feeds from sources selected by Newser’s editors. Newser Local will provide sports coverage from the AP and restaurant and nightlife reviews via Yelp.
