Why doesn't MS integrate Bing/Local Scout with more current services?

Whenever I use Bing to look up a place, or now Local Scout to find places, there is a review score displayed. The problem is, it is usually based on a very small number of reviews or has no score at all. It seems to pull reviews from terribly outdated sites like CitySearch and Yahoo. Who still uses CitySearch I don't know, but that is who MS is deciding to trust for reviews. Forget the fact that TripAdvisor and Yelp are by far and wide the most popular review sites right now. I want to see more reliable reviews for retail, restaurants, and services while using Bing because that is what our phone revolves around. Apple announced that Siri is using Yelp for suggestions. I think MS needs to get with more current web services.
