NewsStat is a small R package that allows you to extract text containing statistics from online news. Simply enter a URL and NewsStat will return sentences containing key stats including, but not limited to: percentages, use of data and references to outliers. It can also be used to extract stats from non-news sites such as websites and blogs. NewsStat is a work in progress - feel free to contribute, build on it and let me know if there are any issues.
