Hurting Google News

Via Technology Evangelist comes news that Markos Moulitsas at Daily Kos has asked to be removed from Google News. He was quoted as saying:
"A "news" operation needs to present news, and credible news at that. That means get rid of the blogs (mostly opinion), get rid of the no-name sites, the conspiracy sites, and the rest of that crap.
Would that include Indymedia?

John Aravosis from AmericaBlog asks:
Is it just me, or has Google News become useless? Their definition of "news sites" seems to include an ever increasing number of simply bizarre Web sites that aren't even the top in their category of site. Meaning, they've tried to include blogs, but only some blogs, and many of the ones they have you'll never have heard of, and many of the ones you have heard of are just plain bad. When I'm doing a news search, I want news site - not blogs, not left-wing conspiracy sites, or right-wing religious nutjobs. News
No, it isn't just you.
