Over the past few years, I have managed to find all sorts of excellent data sources across the web, almost always for free, including static data (e.g. .csv), but also plenty of free APIs, for example finance, weather, sport etc.

But I have not been able to find a free news API.


My question is: where can we find a free and simple news API, with a preference for

  • As many news articles as possible
  • Going back as far as possible

What I've tried

It is well known that Google is an excellent aggregator of news. However, it is notoriously difficult to web scrape (they have a paid news API - not a free one).
