Google News is not completely integrated to offer a search solution. In Search / Images / Maps/ ..., you are looking for information/data - i.e its a search problem. Whereas News is an independent product. And thats the reason, clicking on News link on the Google navigation bar, takes you to a fresh page (without your query).

  • Unfortunately I do not have any evidence to prove my claim. I'll try finding it on Google. My answer reflects my personal opinion only.
