Haystack, Meet Needle

All the news that’s fit to keep.

That’s the expanded mission of the Internet Archive. Having aggregated volumes of print news, the Archive now offers access to the video of national news shows. “TV News Search & Borrow” enables users to search for video based on the terms used in closed caption transcripts.

This makes it much easier to find relevant coverage if you are scheduled to be interviewed for broadcast. You’ll want to view prior shows to see:

  • the interviewing style of the host
  • what points were made — and best received — by guest experts
  • the length of the segment

Plan accordingly!
