Conduct an Google Image search on any news related single term. It can not be a two terms or three terms, it must be a single word.
An example of this is when you conduct a Google image search on apple. You will see the news information on Apple Computer in a gray box at the top, which they name "Images from Google News about apple".
Other example try these image searches:
The list goes on, remember, it seems to only work with single terms.
