NYT reporting:

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The New York Times today introduced “Watching,” a major new feature on the NYTimes.com homepage on desktop and on the mobile website. Watching is a stream of developing and noteworthy news designed to amplify the scope and urgency of The Times’s digital report.
Watching offers a tailored feed of the news of the moment, such as early outlines of developing stories on NYTimes.com and curation of the most newsworthy and trusted reporting from around the web. It also features tweets from Times reporters and others, as well as photos and YouTube videos.

A team of New York Times reporters and editors, led by editors Marcus Mabry, Jennifer Preston, select the content for Watching and are in constant contact with various Times news desks. They search the web and social media for reliable breaking and developing news.
Readers can watch video, share stories and follow others on Twitter and email directly from the Watching module. They can also scroll through Watching indefinitely, to catch up on news they may have missed or track stories over time...
