News360 fails the Kamloops test

Is it fair to judge News360 by its ability to present “local” news? Well, it is considered a feature for the news aggregator, so why not plug in Kamloops (HQ for newsonaut) and see what happens.

As you can see from the screenshot above, News360 pulled in three press releases out of Toronto for its top hits and nothing about Kamloops at all — no matter how far you scroll down.
