It's called 'wire copy.' Plenty of print or online news outlets just link it or copy and paste. Some radio and TV outlets just rip and read.
About the internet search engine, it could be sorted on most recent articles.
The number that stood out to me -- 50,000 people listened online to KEXP. The wording says that 50,000 people cumed KEXP on-line.
To put that in perspective, even bottom-of-the-barrel stations garner 50,000 in cume, just in Seattle. And KEXP gets 50,000 worldwide? And that's "on a roll?"
Comapring it to internet standards: Yahoo Music/Launchcast gets 1.9 million in cume. AOL Radio gets a little over 1 million.
Probably doesn't matter to the KEXP folks, just as long as the checks come in.
