Current events timeline?
August 30, 2005 8:05 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for some timelines that chart recent/current events - for instance, a timeline that logs the major news stories in the months leading up to the 2004 election; or, a timeline that charts important stories in the war on terror since/before 9/11. Doesn't have to be links, could just be headlines. thanks for any suggestions

google has zeitgeist, which is close to what you're looking for. I don't see it now, but it used to have timelines of things.

Will this help?

yeah the wikipedia would be functional...i was thinking a little more graphical. Even an example of one particular issue's development mapped out against a timeline. (A somewhat related example i just found: timeline of Bush's popularity as mapped against terror alerts. I'm more interested in plain old headlines than this, though.)

go through the NYT Multimedia section. They have a ton in a bunch of different formats. That search doesn't find all the single image timelines I've seen, like a few published during the Plame/Rove leak.

How about the Center for Cooperative Research's timelines?

2004 on wikipedia. They have all the years, just change the URL, or "drill down" to the date you want from this page.

The center for coop research looks particularly promising, but they seem to be in jeopardy...i will look around there more, might make a donation to help them out. Thanks!
