Sorry! Here's the story itself:

The hed, which isn't repeated inside, is a screen grab from the Beeb front, news.bbc.co.uk; it's still up at this writing.

I don't know a good way of citing screen grabs (unfortunate, because I had to quote several pertinent ones in an article recently) from news sites. Be nice if somebody comes up with one; as it is, I have a lot of folders full of bmps of assorted Fox fronts.

Maybe: snapshot: Fox News.com front page date/time ?

That looks like it's by way of being a good standard-- probably put the site before "snapshot," and we and the continentals will have to settle on 12- or 24-hour time, and what time zone to use, and that stuff, but a lot of that is in the coin-toss category of style.

I don't see a way around the impermanence of the record, but given the tendency toward making data sets available, maybe screen grabs will be the sort of thing you submit along with your study.

I'd rather see the APA (and the AP, for that matter) dealing with stuff like this rather than wackoid pronouncements about "while," but -- that's "style" for you.
