Is there a way to search EVERY local patch story nationwide?

I'm trying to find examples of a specific kind of news story and it seems like the only one who covers it is local newspapers or Patch. I want to try to search Patch on a national level instead of, good grief, searching each one at a time. Is there any way to do that?

Trying to find news articles which would discourage someone visiting the US from going to Times Square. I have tried Google News and some basic internet searches, but of course it's hard to know what to even search for in other languages.

Finding a news article

I have a quote from and a link to an AP article published a few months ago. Problem is, searching for the quote on Google gives no relevant results, the link now goes to an error page saying the article was not found, and I can't find the article in a search of the AP archives. What to do?
