Google recently dropped the News Archive home page leaving people searching for old news with the only option of using a link on the left side of Google News named "archive."
Now, that news archive link is not even available for some users.
A Google News Help thread has confirmed reports from Google saying there is a bug with Internet Explorer 7 users who are not able to see the link.
Harvey from Google News said:
Thanks again for providing more information. Our engineers have confirmed that the latest changes to News Archive is incompatible with IE7. We're working to correct this issue, but in the you may want to switch to a different browser while this gets resolved.
Solution: Switch browsers? :)
The bug was reported back on August 20th.
