Christmas comes early for TV news junkies

The Internet Archive website now has “every morsel of news produced in the last three years by 20 different channels, encompassing more than 1,000 news series that have generated more than 350,000 separate programs devoted to news,” reports Bill Carter. Broadcasts — including “The Daily Show” — are added 24 hours after they’re aired.
