Does anyone know of a dataset that has metadata about news articles? Specifically, I am doing a research project about authors of news articles, so I need the metadata to include the authors' names. I do not need full news article texts.

Dataset requirements:

  1. 100k+ news articles
  2. Covers 5+ publications
  3. Spans 15+ years of articles Metadata about each article with author name(s) + year published
  4. Must be sourced legitimately (no TOS-breaking scraped data)
  5. FREE or under $200, and under a license that would allow me to publish findings in a typical academic journal (e.g. PLOS One).

I've looked through many potential sources, including many links from relevant qs on Open Data. Here are some examples:
