Best way to tell whether an online news article was published in print
February 17, 2012 12:51 PM Subscribe
At work I am often asked whether a news story on a website appeared in print, and we need to know within a quick timeframe. We do not have Lexis Nexis or any other such database for me to check against and there's no chance that we'll have money in our budget to buy a subscription. Usually I resort to using Press Display, but they don't have every paper. Is there an online resource for me to use to determine what was published in print?

Often I am checking on larger papers like Wall Street Journal or USA Today, but occasionally I have to find out with very small local papers or I will have to check to see if a particular article was published in print in several papers across the nation.
There is no chance that we have it in our budget to add another subscription, we already cut our LexisNexis subscription, so looking for something free or nearly free.
