Pretty much what it says, I wanted to look for news a film that has just been added which might have got earlier mentions in news articles which aren't linked into it, but can't find a way to search for other news.The problem is that linking to titles or characters or names from news articles is patchy (I corrected a couple recently, so have kept an eye open for others problems and have half a dozen problem reports queued up waiting for the 5 minute limit to go by) so if you add an article, it'd be handy to find all mentions of it that are already on IMDB. Clearly some people will be interested in this for helping to promote their projects, but it also helps IMDB too as it'll mean more people could browse to the different articles (and interlinking is important for SEO), it boosts hits for news providers and fans of an actor or character or title can look around to see if there is anything related news has missed (which it does seem to do from time to time).

Great idea, I usually have to go through recently cast members or directors news section when i try to add new titles..I wish there was an option to search for the exact word, the only other option is ofcourse google with keyword "site:imdb.com "search item" news"

Yep that is what I've had to resort to:

http://www.google.com/search?q=avenge...

Note that just about every one of those is missing a couple of links, sometimes to characters (like Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver which might be understandable, even though they have their own character pages, but the Hulk?) but also at least one if missing the link to the second Avengers film, even when giving it its proper name (again "Avengers 2" might be understandable).

YES! IMDBPro NEEDS A news search feature in the news area like most sites have. At least so you are being to search by dates? It really is frustrating that there is no way for a paying IMDB customer to search News stories. It really does not make any sense. It could be simple to change that nand make many people happy and allow them to more efficiently manage thier appearance on IMDB Pro, which can help thier career, which is something that IMDBPro prides themselves on. For instance there are many older stories that I would like to have linked to my name that mention my name, but it's near impossible to find them because they are from a year or two ago. It would take days of me sitting there and hitting "more", through days and week and years of stories. PLEASE IMDBProd, add a simple "search by date" feature! I'm sure it can be done within a day.
