Starting tomorrow, every minute of network news video — including national broadcast networks, cable networks, and local news affiliates — recorded since 2009 will be available online at the Internet Archive and will be searchable by text.
If that seems unimaginable, and it does seem like that to me, read about it at The New York Times, All the TV News Since 2009, on One Web Site.
Wish to dog they could get 1960 through 1975 broadcasts like that. Lotta history in those broadcasts. Lotta history in 2009 to now — but it’s contemporary, and it will crowd out study of earlier times.
Thanks for the Tweet and the post. I missed it in the paper.
