Giant database of current TV news transcripts and video September 17, 2012 7:19 PMSubscribe
You know how Jon Stewart shows politicians contradicting themselves on news clips? Do it yourself by searching a giant database of TV transcripts and video on Internet Archive. The collection now contains 350,000 news programs collected since 2009 from national U.S. networks and stations. The archive is updated with new broadcasts 24 hours after they are aired. Older materials are being added. There's a lot more to the site than searching for text, add comments to video at certain points, statistical graphs, etc. see the "observations and uses" video and statements.
