Why do links in news stories only look for more news stories?

Question by Susan C: Why do links in news stories only look for more news stories?
Why do links in news stories only look for more news stories about the linked item, rather than send you to real reasources? For example, a link in a story about an earthquake in Peru is to the US Geological Survey. It would be much more useful to be able to click on the link and go to the USGS web site, rather than have a useless link that looks for more stories about the USGS. Similarly, a link for Peru or Lima in the story would be more useful for people if they would find non-news related items and web sites, rather than just other stories.

Most of the news agencies are trying to create the news instead of just reporting it. We are a polarized nation between the Bush haters and the ones who like him. The major newspapers around the country are leftists and many of the talk radio shows are rightists. Each have the ratings to contend with and will say or do anything for those ratings which translate into advertising dollars. Follow the money sonny.

Why is FOX News ONLY advertising Super Tuesday February 5, 2008 on its shows?

Question by I’m right: Why is FOX News ONLY advertising Super Tuesday February 5, 2008 on its shows?
The first caucus is Iowa on January 3rd. New Hampshire is on the 8th. Does it have something to do with who’s NOT LEADING in the polls in Iowa and NH in the GOP Primary?
Let me be clear: after watching 2 hrs of FoxNews (Hannity and Colmes and Oreilly), I noticed that at the bottom right hand corner of the screeen above the ticker was a reminder about the February 5 2008 Super Tuesday Primaries but NO MENTION about the first primary in our country the IOWA caucus.
The “Murdoch Agenda”, I guess would be NOT to promote those primaries (IA and NH) because Rudy Guiliani is NOT LEADING in those polls…?

Do free news tabloids make money only from advertising?

Question by topinkavokiki: Do free news tabloids make money only from advertising?
And when firt starting out, how does one actually get advertisers? Are you supposed to approach them urself?

Best answer:

Answer by Whortleberry
Yes. Only from advertising. But if you’re diligent in obtaining ads, you can do nicely. On first starting out…you may as well figure you are going to lose the price of that edition. Selling ads for a publication that does not exist is horrendously difficult. But just go ahead and run off the first edition — now you have something to take around to your various potential advertisers.

Good luck! You really can do this. I did it some years ago. Loved doing it. Quit only because of health problems (NOT related to running the newspaper.)

New IntelliClipsTM News Monitoring Service Delivers Only the Important News Stories

Stratford, CT (PRWEB) June 9, 2004

CyberAlert, Inc., a leading worldwide media monitoring and press clipping service, today launched IntelliClipsTM XL, a news monitoring service that delivers only the news stories in which the client’s key words are prominently featured and automatically deletes news clips that contain only passing reference to the company. To further target key news coverage, the IntelliClips XL service also enables clients to limit and select the online news sources to be monitored by country, language, industry category, and even specific publication title.

“We’ve found that larger companies especially want to avoid the time and cost of reviewing news clips that contain only mere mentions of their company,” said William J. Comcowich, President and CEO of CyberAlert (www.cyberalert.com). “The new IntelliClips XL service answers that need with cleverly-designed algorithms that monitor only the news sources selected by the client, eliminate unimportant news stories, and deliver only stories in which the company is prominently mentioned.” The new service adds substantial value, he said, by saving clients’ time and increasing their productivity.

CyberAlert monitors over 13,000 online news purveyors each day in 17 languages, the most comprehensive online media coverage in the world.

The IntelliClips XL service includes complex Boolean searches with unlimited key terms, customized to the specific needs of each client. Clients can also choose the frequency of delivery for their IntelliClips – either once per day overnight delivery (7/365) before start of business or frequently throughout the business day, often within minutes of online publication.

The IntelliClips XL service includes “Digital Clip BookTM”, an exclusive service of CyberAlert that safely stores clips in a central database accessed through a password-protected Web site with built-in search engine. The digital clip storage enables IntelliClips subscribers to easily sort, search, distribute and manage news clips.

IntelliClips XL is a subscription service with no per clip fees. IntelliClips monthly costs are up to 71% lower than traditional press clipping services. More information about IntelliClips is available at http://www.cyberalert.com/IntelliClips.html.

Is “Google Groups” the only game in town to search Historical Contents of usenet?

Question by Buckley Valeo: Is “Google Groups” the only game in town to search Historical Contents of usenet?
Anybody remember altavista? That’s what I want. Google Groups used to be able to search historical usenet postings, but now the results are cluttered up with posts from non-usenet groups hosted exclusively by Google. I’m not interested in finding lists of usenet groups, I know they exist. I’m interested in finding an alternative way to search usenet historical posts by keyword.
No answers might suggest that it’s impossible to search the historical contents of usenet without the help of Google’s newly crippled service. If this is true, I’m am saddened.
Although searching for binaries might be the goal of some, it’s not the point of my question. I’m just looking for how to do a text search on the contents of historical usenet posts. It wouldn’t have to go back fifteen years, like altavista did, but should be at least five years. Yes, something similar can be done by trying to search the posts on thousands of web-based forums, but I don’t think any one of those is as big as usenet or has as many techies who participate and add meaningful content.

Answer by Peter R
There are several Usenet search engines. Not sure how good they are and some require $ $ $ to use. But check out the following blog post and see if one might work well for you.


DMOZ has several in their directory:


and a Google search will surface a bunch:
