Back on May 23, 2007, IDG News Service asked Nathan Stoll, the product manager of Google News if he had any plans to add a video component to Google News. Stoll said then, "We don't want to preannounce any features, but our Google News philosophy is to give users access to all the perspectives on a news story. To the extent that a lot of those are in video and becoming available online, we'd certainly love to make those perspectives available and easily discoverable." Well, those perspectives are now available and easily discoverable.
