names MUST include the word 'news'.  NO dashes or numbers.  NO I or E
prefixes.  Quality names only please.  Thanks.

You mentioned that the domain name you want is taken.  Do you want
only 30-50 domain name ideas or do want a Researcher to suggest 30-50
domain names *after* searching to see if they are available?

Best regards,

They don't have to be available, but they should be good suggestions. 
I would say the majority of them shoudl be available.

No problem, I'm mainly looking for brainstorming ideas.  Not too
concerned with availability.  I've doubled the price on the answer

This is a tough order because most good two word combinations with the
word "news" before the .com suffix have already been taken. Are you
aware that there are other suffixes besides .com which might be
useful, such as .biz or .info? Most of the following suggestions are
available in .com, but I've included a few that were already taken in
.com but were available with other suffixes. A few of the names here
are "creative," but as per your request to ensure that the name
communicates the nature of your business, I've tried to stick to more
mundane words for the most part.

I checked these for availability using [ ].

well now...if I had thousands and thousands of dollars, I wouldn't be
doing this cheapy little question ;-)

I'll raise the dollar amount a little, but I'm looking for
brainstorming more than anything.  I'm not paying anyone thousands of
dollars :-)  Thanks though.

Http:// is an excellent resource for discovering
available domain names. That site allows you to put in two keywords
and then suggests domain names and shows which TLDs are taken for each
suggestion. Searching Nameboy is free.
