I searched for “earthquake Afghanistan” and refreshed a few times, then noticed suddenly current video results were surfacing in Bing on the first page of the search results. They also had a “new” tag on them.
However, in the case of the “One News Page” video results, these two “new” results were actually spam video results. The headlines were about the earthquake but the videos were completely unrelated to the quake and were actually published days earlier. Neither had any additional content on the page related to the earthquake aside from the lengthy headline.
The NDTV result tagged as “new” was a new result about the quake, though. So only one of the three “new” video results for a breaking news story were actually legitimate results.
Bing is also serving these video results to Yahoo as well.
