New nice news API
This is free and from your marketplace: https://rapidapi.com/webit/api/webit-news-search
I’m surprised that News API by Event Registry is missing from the list. We provide content from over 150.000 news sources globally in over 60 languages. Provided content is semantically annotated, categorized, contains sentiment score, number of shares on social media, etc. We would be very interested in getting into the list if that is possible.
You should add Webit News Search API too. It has plenty of sources and is extremely convenient compared to other APIs’ prices.
I’m using the stock market news API from newsfilter.io. Excellent coverage, real-time query and stream API, and covers all sources for trading and investing.
