Searching old news is relatively easy, but search engines take a while to add pages and update links.
Is there one where you could search about the latest rumours on a court trial, the latest polls for the presidential elections, or the latest developments of a hijacked airplane or whatever?
NYtimes.com, etc. have their own searches, but since you can only search one publication at a time, there are two problems:
(1) There is a problem if you are searching for a very specific, non-bigtime issue, which only tends to get coverage in small-readership, specialized publications.
(2) Within your one-source search, your results will be biased toward that particular source's stance.
I just want to be able to see different sources' accounts of very recent events side-by-side.
http://www.wwideweb.com/engine.htm has multiple search fields for this purpose.
A scrolly bar at the top that has the AP, Reuters, Time, CNN, and other sources for news. Very useful and good. [pnewp, Apr 02 2001, last modified Oct 04 2004]
