Here's two ways to track the news of the world visually using Googles Maps Tools:
First is a mashup of streaming TV news from News networks around the world and Google Maps.
This mashup brings you world news streaming TV mashup with Google Maps. Watch live world news TV from the world including CNN, Bloomberg BBC, Sky News, ABC News Now, Canada Pulse 24, CCTV-9 China, Iran PressTV, France24, CNN IBN India, Russia Today.

The second tool for News Maps is Headlinemap. This one takes the latest stories from various news sources, displays the sources and pinpoints that news story location on the map. You can zoom into any region (down to the state and portion of a state) to see headlines from a particular location. Very useful and an interesting way to view the news.
