Last week, I asked Google News to include ALP, and their response was prompt, clear, concise, and negative:

Thank you for your note. We reviewed Always Low Prices but cannot add it to Google News because we currently only include sites with news articles that report on recent events. We appreciate your suggestion and will log the site for consideration should our guidelines change.
The decision not to include ALP is theirs to make, and I fully understand that ALP is not the Financial Times. But the given reasoning would seem to exclude most newspapers that perform any investigative journalism, since many political scandals are not "recent".
