The headline stories are similar, but if you look at Yahoo news you'll see that the majority of the stories are from the Associated Press; other agencies (Reuters etc) supply some. But the range of sources is very small (presumably Yahoo has an expensive licensing arrangement with those sources, and the agencies, not algorithms, determine the headline stories). Google News is compiled from X thousand sources (Philipp counted).
