Humans beat machines!

Michael Jackson Acquittal Makes Yahoo! News Before Google - Search Engine Journal

I am not quite sure if this should be called a case of humans beating machines. Don't machines (in this case google spiders ) inherently rely on humans? Google Spiders can only look at stories that have already been posted by humans on the web. And they wouldn't move it to the top unless they find multiple similar stories. So unless they pick up similar stories from different sources, it would probably not move up to the top.

Another note: The article repeats its headline as the deck. Kinda redundant.
