One of the things I liked about DDG was the claim to not bubble me.

I had a play searching for news on Ukraine and was very disappointed with the results.

It looked very biased towards USA media with Fox News and NBC near the top.

I would have expected RT.com to also be near the top simple because of the large number articles at rt.com on this subject.

**** PLEASE DON’T BUBBLE ME ****

In fact I would like to see an option for more alternative news sources as well as the traditional sources.

I also did a search for Jimmy Savile (a pretty big story in the UK) but no news box showed up.

What is going on?

Also when I do a CTRL+left click on a story in the news box no new tab opens, I have to do a left click and open in same tab. I would have expected the news box to work the same way as normal links.

To be clear, we're not bubbling here. These stories are the same across the entire user-base. I will look into the Jimmy Savile example, perhaps it's caught in a relevancy filter for some reason. We acknowledge and are fixing the click issue currently.
