I'm not sure why they decided freshness=better, or where freshness is even relevant. They're indexing information, now they're saying on a broad swath what they want to index is news.
Perhaps that's the case, and what they intend. But it's not what's important in my niche. Stuff hasn't changed for 50 years.
