    Is it just me, but does it seem like "news" should be an option in Bing/Cortana search results, in addition to web, local, images etc.

    Maybe...

    Not every search string lends itself to news, however.

    "Why is the sky blue" News Results.
    "How do I tie a Windsor Knot?" News Results
    Etc...

    You could add "news" to the end of a search string if you want news articles to jump to the top of the results. "South Korean Ferry Disaster News."

    I agree that not every search lends itself to news results. But the same holds true for Bing searches on a PC, but it's always an option you can click on. 99% of the time I would find that more useful than local. In fact, I don't think I've once used the local search option.

    Just noticed today that news is now included in Cortana search results. I'm taking full credit!
