Hoover's Online Home Page
Incredible business news resource. This site calls itself "The Ultimate Source for Company Information" and we won't argue.

Highly recommended.

Editor and Publisher has news about the press -- stories about who is laying off workers, who is pulling reporters out of hotspots and who is sending them in, and how the media are planning their coverage of current events.
