These news articles used to only be present on mobile but have recently become visible on desktop. At the bottom of the screen is a gray footer-type section. Above that gray bar is another gray bar that does nothing but list my country. All news articles listed under the search box are taken from other publications. I notice many of the articles are either related to things I would usually browse for or domains I frequently visit. To the right side of the news was a widget displaying some stock prices.
