The Associated Press has a news service called ASAP which is geared toward 18-35 year olds and makes use of things like blogs and other media to present the news. It has made use of the Google Maps API to a great new ASAP NewsMap Mashup that shows location-based news.. Don't worry, if you're under 18 or over 35, you can still view it. :)
ASAP covered Google Maps mashups back in November in the article titled: "Eye in the sky, on your computer".
