Lots of very good points jecasc. From my point of view I don't use a search engine for news. I already have my preferred newspapers and know their websites -- I just go there directly.
I guess the only time I would use search and find results from newspaper snippets is if I am looking for something obscure that hasn't hit the mainstream flow yet, or even at all -- and it's not in my geographic region so I would be unfamiliar with the newspaper name.
