If we are able to search news websites on DuckDuckGo, I really think that it would make a huge difference to this website.

The word "News" is a trigger for the News Instant Answer. Example:
news benghazi
https://duckduckgo.com/?q=news+benghazi

If you find that some News searches don't work as expected, you can report them here and the Devs will take a look.

Thanks!

What doesn't work? Did the example provide work? If not, verify that you have Instant Answers enabled in settings. Can you provide an example of a news search that didn't work?

Thanks, I'll pass this on. Interesting that searching David Villa and even "David Villa" didn't return any results but Villa David did. I'll make sure that the devs get all of this information.

Thanks!
