Who's writing about the colossal squid this week?

I enjoy reading the Knight Science Journalism Tracker, an MIT website that gives timely peer review to popular science journalism. Can anyone recommend similar sites or blogs that do the same for other types of news. I'd love to find a site that uses a similar format to both cover world events and critique their coverage at the same time, for example.

I have no good news

Awhile ago I found a link to an RSS reader called Good News on this site. It was fun while I had it, but thanks to a reformat due to overly gregarious bluescreens, I lost the installer. It's one of those independent open source thingers with an address buried deep on a personal website, if I remember right, and its name is making it impossible to search for. Could anyone help me find it again?

TAL without the annoying bits. And possibly in Spanish.

Storytelling, deep news stories, themed narratives: Podcasts in this vein wanted. Think "This American Life" but not always as funny or quirky, or the longer news stories on NPR that use the lens of a smaller story-within-a-story. Artsy takes on news also welcome. In addition, which Latino podcasts (in the same general format) have caught your ear? [more inside]

Web 2.0 news sites?

I'm trying to get into the spirit of "Web 2.0"-ish news sites -- the ones that let users tag, vote on, share and produce their own stories. But contrasted with the fireside feeling of reading blogs, the news-aggregator experience has seemed sort of cold, fragmented and short on users. What hot, promising or lively user-generated news services have you discovered?
