CNN transcript collection, 2000-2012

Posted to Data Sources  |  Tags: , ,  |  Nathan Yau

Thanks to the Internet Archive and CNN, thirteen years of transcripts, about a gigabyte compressed, is available to download as one file.

For over a decade, CNN (Cable News Network) has been providing transcripts of shows, events and newscasts from its broadcasts. The archive has been maintained and the text transcripts have been dependably available at transcripts.cnn.com. This is a just-in-case grab of the years of transcripts for later study and historical research.

Changes in news coverage and CNN’s focus over the years, anyone?
