Mike’s been extremely helpful with my Newsisfree tools, and my searchSources service now works (source; there’s also a hardcoded term version (source)).
Do note that the search is done only in the name field. I have suggested Mike to also make it seach the description; so that my blog turns up in a search for “gov” 😉
I now have all the bricks I need to use Newsisfree efficiently. Stay tuned.
