  • Jon00's CNN Breaking News

    Lately, CNN breaking news isn't working. It plays the wav file then nothing more. I'm thinking CNN changed their email.

    Yep no breaking news in the last 10 days for me.

      John,

      Yes, you are correct. CNN have been altering their text within the email. I already modified my version but forgot to update this for others. I will try and do this at the weekend. I also updated this script to VB.NET at the same time

      Rupp,

      This is NOT the same as CNN breaking news via web scraping. It is via their email service and processed through my POP3 email package. Since July 19th 2006, I have received 8 CNN breaking news announcements.

        Even though you're talking about the email notification, I wonder if there was a change on cnn's web page effecting the breaking news alert script? It's been 10 days for me too.

        I've seen some news alerts on their website that I did'nt pick up recently...

          All good things must come to an end. If anyone can find a breaking news XML feed let me know and we can convert over.

              HomeTech,
              I already use http://rss.cnn.com/rss/cnn_topstories.rss for the CNN_Headlines script. But the headlines are different than breaking news.

                  CNN News Alert

                  My last news alert was:

                  Reuters: Israel has closed the port at Haifa in the wake of Hezbollah's rocket attacks, the Israeli transport ministry said. 17-Jul-06 9:16:13 AM

                  Any news on an update?

                    Pete that was my last one as well. I'm really missing this script but the CNN site is s nightmare to scrape. We need a more reliable XML feed for instant breaking news.
