Wait a second - Bing DOES have a great freshness feature under news. Look up a hot story, like Hilary Adams. On the main page, you get the latest stories, which is what you probably want if you're following her story. But go to the News tab, and there's more of the latest, but look at the right - There's a "most recent" list with stories that are no more than a few hours old. And I'm finding exactly what I want on that story through it.
Meanwhile, all Google articles are at least a day old on this topic.
Bing is really doing a better job than Google in many areas right now, it's just people don't know about it. Check out their driving directions - they give you landmarks now, which is awesome if you aren't familiar with the street you're looking for next.
