MSN Newsbot launched

Chris Sherman reports that Microsoft's personalized news site, MSN Newsbot, has launched in the US. Interesting to see how it compares to Findory News.

Update: The press release from Microsoft.

Update: Press coverage of the launch seems to be focusing on MSN Newsbot as a "Google News killer". Certainly true that this represents a new front in the search war between Google, MSN, and Yahoo.

Update: Some good coverage on Poynter E-Media Tidbits and ResourceShelf.
