Yahoo Boss news api and operators

Hi,

I'm using the Yahoo Boss API to retrieve documents from the web, news and blogs services. I have no problem with the query operators (AND, OR, -) with the web and blogs services.

But the operators do not seem to work with the news service.

Ex :

http://yboss.yahooapis.com/ysearch/news?format=json&q=samsung&sort=date&start=0&count=50

-> totalresults = 1585

http://yboss.yahooapis.com/ysearch/news?format=json&q=%28%28samsung%29AND%28apple%29%29&sort=date&start=0&count=50

-> totalresults = 8000

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance.
