Google Advanced News Search: Large Bug

The bug is that, as far as I can tell, users can no longer access the Google News advanced search page from a keyboard.

Previously, you could display the advanced news search page using a link that was
accessible from a keyboard or by using a mouse.

Now, to display the advanced search page you must use a mouse to click an arrow within the search field. 

This raises an issue of accessibility for people who cannot use a mouse.
