Danny Sullivan wrote an interesting post describing how two stories at Search Engine Watch Blog got major play on Digg and Google News at the same time.

News. One case study does not a rule make. I repeat again, one example is not the rule. But in this case, Google News
produced traffic way, way over what Digg did. Below, a look at what happened, with a lot of observations on the long
search tail, getting credit through Digg, some fun stats and more.
Yesterday, I wrote a big story about how Yahoo had won among the search engines in being most relevant for providing
election results, In The Election Results Race, Yahoo's The Winner. That story made it into Google News. Meanwhile, Barry had written a brief that made it into Digg, Australia's Proposed Copyright Rules Would Make Search Engines Impossible, Warns Google." The story was also on Google News in the top keywords results.
