One thing you can do much better on Google+ versus Facebook and Twitter: Write an extended comment about a story that's long enough not to be taken out of context.

Once you've shared a link to Twitter you're left with about 15 characters to offer commentary -- that's too short to say anything meaningful, and followers often misunderstand you.

And Facebook doesn't seem to be a good venue to have discussions about news topics -- it's much more personal than that.

I'm betting Google+ will therefore be huge for the discussion of news articles -- it hits the sweet spot.
