Is there a google page which simply lists important online news sources?

Anyone got the URL of the google page which simply lists important online news sources? I don't mean their News page, but a simple list, mainly newspapers. They put it up within a day or two of September 11, and I've found it invaluable since then. Computer crash means I don't have access to bookmarks and cannot find it by searching google. Thanks.

speaking of which, does Google have a simple page somewhere that allows you to navigate to all the parts of their site?

For instance, I didn't even know google answers existed until a couple of weeks ago, because it isn't listed on their home page.

I know about web, groups, directory, images, news and answers. I know about froogle. Are there any exciting google pages I'm missing? Google TV Listings? Google Medical Advice? Google Games? Google Free Candy?

http://www.google.com.au/options/

Yeah, that would be what I was looking for thanks. I noticed "options" once before, but I wrongly assumed that it told you to do stuff like put quotes around a phrase if you want to search for the whole phrase. But I guess that's more "help" than "options."

Not quite what you asked for, but useful nonetheless: a directory of online newspaper sites around the world.

Another list, from RefDesk.

I used to use perfunctory.org for my start page, but it seems slightly slower since it (apparently) changed servers. Still, a nice starting point for online news.

Anildash gets a star from me. Exactly what I was looking for, and so simple once I see the URL. The other suggestions look useful too, and I'll explore them over the next few days. Thanks to all who replied.
