Google News has added a new section: "Beyond the headlines - In-depth reporting on key topics." Each story is helpfully marked with the time it will take to read. Many are under five minutes. Only one in my feed is over ten minutes.
This is some definition of "in-depth" with which I had not previously been familiar.
@dekkzz78 Looks like it may be a Firefox sync issue related to the size of synched data. Yuck.
