Google testing and building hyper local news app of citizen journalists.

Google is building Bulletin, a hyperlocal community news service https://a.msn.com/r/2/BBIhIVP?m=en-us&a=1

I've always said the future of news was to go hyperlocal.

*All* they have to do is bolt this on Waze. Period. Done. Wazers are extreme fanbois already using the system for flagging road events. And it doesn't get any more granular than the street address.

I bet they will. Like the article says it will enhance the G news feed.
The downside is this may really hurt small local newspapers.
