Yahoo News INTITLE Operator Not Functioning

If you try to conduct a title search in Yahoo news, you will fail. Both Yahoo and Google give you a method of searching for keywords that match in just the headline of the article. To do so, you can go to the Yahoo News Advanced Search page and select "in the headline of the article" as shown here:

Yahoo News Headline Search

An alternative method, if you are a speed searcher, is to use the intitle: operator. For example, to find all matching headlines for the keyword "google" in Yahoo News, search for intitle:google and it will return the same results.

The problem is, Yahoo News has a intitle operator bug that seems to be returning zero results for the command.

The operator works nicely at Google News.
