Abstract

The web has become an important medium for news delivery and consumption. Fresh content about a variety of topics and events is constantly being created and published on the web by many sources. As intuitively understood by readers, and studied in journalism, news articles produced by different social groups present different attitudes towards and interpretations of the same news issues. In this paper, we propose a new paradigm for aggregating news articles according to the news sources related to the stakeholders of the news issues. We implement this paradigm in a prototype system called Local Savvy. The system provides users the capability to aggregate and browse various local views about the news issues in which they are interested.
