Another Question For You, Gentle Readers

I know that there are people here who do research into events that were recently current, so, I've got a question.

Is anybody else finding it REALLY hard to find old news articles online?

One example. I can't find a lot involving the American response to the Russian movement into the Donbass back in 2009-10 2014 and particularly the fact that at that time there were actual Nazis (not neo-, not alt-right, I'm talking Jew Hating socialists sporting a Crooked Buddhist Sunwheel) in the Ukranian parliament.

I'm not a particular fan of Milo, but I recently tried to look up info on the hit job against him. I found plenty on the false accusations, but I had to use the mee.nu search engine to find one of my own posts with 6 links debunking them, none of which were searchable without EXACT wording.

I'm now having a hard time finding old blog posts, particularly ones on my old blog, or references to my, um,  ill-fated Congressional run.

I'm SURE there used to be an option where one could search by date ie: by year and month and keywords as opposed to just "Anytime, Past Week, Past Month, Last Year".

Am I imagining this?


That is all.

Here is a completely coincidental video:

1 It's pretty bad.  I've done the same thing, searching my own blog to find a link to the original story because Google was a big ball of fail.

2 One reason I use DuckDuckGo.

BTW, RWBY season 7 starts Nov 2nd. And they've greenlit seasons 8 and 9.

3 Russians in Donbass in 2009? That sounds a little off. The "revolution of dignity" occurred in the winter of 2013-2014. Russia annexed Crimea in February 2014. The cleansing and genocide of ethnic Russians in Donbass was carried out in spring, which prompted the rebellion by summer. Russian help started arriving by August, which is when I think it's plausible to talk about Russians into Donbass. But hardly in 2009-2010.

4 Pete, I distinctly remember...


Time to reset the fail counter.

5 Nope. It's not just you. Finding fact-based older news stories requires extremely tedious, specific searching and references; while the BS is quite easy to find.

6 It's often very hard to find specific results, even in Google Books, or even with specific Latin or Greek verbiage put between quotation marks.
