Where are the best places to get instant, Tivo-like replay of just-concluded political speeches and similar events in the US and elsewhere? [more inside]
What is News? I'm looking for any books, blogs, essays, articles, etc. that relate to any intelligent definitions of news or how people believe the news in 50 years will work. I'm not interested in evaluations of bias, the demise of mainstream media, or inane ramblings about Web 2.0. [more inside]
I am trying to remember the address of a website I used to use daily. It's a one-page site, updated early each morning with a selection of links to Australian and international news stories. It's not just an aggregator; the links are carefully chosen by a woman who I believe used to be a newspaper reporter. It's called something like 'morning news' or 'breakfast brief'. Maddeningly, it seems to be un-Googlable. Any ideas? Or, failing that, any suggestions for similar sites?
Why do online magazines/news sites post articles over multiple pages? [more inside]

Where can I get live news feeds online (CNN, MSNBC, etc.)? I'm not in the US now and don't have cable TV, so the internet is my only way to get news. I want to get more NOLA coverage.
I'm looking for streaming Japanese-language talk or news radio. Specifically, I'm looking for a live feed rather than short clips (the latter of which I seem to find tons of), and preferably low-bandwidth audio-only rather than video. I don't read Japanese, so searching is difficult.
After spending most of the morning trying to get decent web coverage of the space launch, I must ask: what are some reliable Internet news radio stations?
