From my point of view I don't use a search engine for news.
And from my point of view as an Adwords user I don't use news relevant keywords for my ad campaigns on search engines. Where are all the ads for "euro crisis", "syria conflict" or "florida republican convention". When there are ads it's usually only news sites bidding on those keywords.
And were are the news snippets in SERPS for ad relevant keywords like "cheap widgets", "widget shop", "buy red widgets online"?
