Our site, http://www.berkeleyside.com, has vanished from Google News since Saturday. We do more original reporting on Berkeley, CA, than anyone else. We provide stories to the San Francisco Chronicle, so we have the irony of our stories being indexed from the Chronicle hours after they appeared on Berkeleyside (Berkeleyside always has them first). We get picked up regularly by The New York Times. 

I could go on and on. We're doing a great job of making local news work in the new media world. How can we just vanish from Google News after being indexed successfully for the last two years?
