GOOGLE buries the most important story of the day?!

For as long as I can remember, I've quickly checked the major market indices by going to Google -> News -> Business, and checking the "Market Summary" in the top right corner. This morning and afternoon, it was mysteriously absent, replaced by a "Featured Video of the Day". Where did it go?

I understand the reasoning --- --- hiding the bad news from the panicky public for as long as possible. Clearly GOOG would like to take a slot in the DJIA now that a couple others are getting booted out. It's money, it's politics, it's fishy.
My question is, where should I go to get the bulk of the juicy gossip about today's magical phenomenon? Perhaps we can discuss it right here. Ethical, moral, logical, accidental? Was GOOG hacked?!? Which higher-up forced some code-flunky to do this today? Where is the _real_ story behind this being discussed?
