Aside from the map, perhaps the most complete news search tool (English language) comes from the UK at http://www.newsnow.co.uk. It will soon break the 30,000 source mark.

NewsNow is in the business of selling their full service with advanced search features so searching here is one word at a time. However, as a browse tool the size of it's crawl, the frequency of updates, and some excellent organization make it hard to beat.

1) Note the hundreds of pre-built news categories (what they call feeds) in the left rail. Often, during breaking news, a category will be created.

2) Each source has a a flag icon next to it to identify the source country.

3) Both mainstream news sources as well as hand-picked blogs. Sites that require a fee or registration are also noted.

For example, here is the "feed" for Peru
http://www.newsnow.co.uk/newsfeed/?name=Peru
and another for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
http://www.newsnow.co.uk/newsfeed/?name=Pittsburgh+Steelers

Finally, this color coded feed will show you each and every article as it makes its way into the database:
http://www.newsnow.co.uk/livefeed/

and this feed is limited to press releases in the info tech sector.
