Fix and standardize the querying on Google News Archive Search

On Google News if you do a search for you get some results, which is what you expect. Curiously enough, if you try doing that same search for on Google News Archive Search (like so), you get: "Your search - - did not match any documents." You have to put within quotes in order to get results (like so). Clearly something is broken since as a search term works on Google News, Google Images, Google Web Search, etc. but not on the Google News Archive Search. Google, I suggest that you fix this bug.

By the way, thanks for adding a link on Google News to Google News Archive Search from the search results. I don't know if that was a result of reading my suggestion a few weeks back or not, but either way I sure do appreciate it as do a whole lot of other Google News users as well.
