Google News has spam now, too

There have been complaints that Google Mail has recently become overrun with spam. It seems like maybe there is something seriously wrong at Google these days, and now apparently Google News is also serving spam.

I wonder if maybe that one site got hacked and Google News just didn’t catch the change in content.

The way I have used my email, I’m surprised I haven’t gotten much in the way of spam, but the spam that doesn’t appear to be caught by the spam filter seems to never have me in the to or cc field. I wonder if the spam filters are not as strict when you do mail forwarding?
