Scrape news headlines and stories

I want a Windows application that can do two things for a research project from the [url removed, login to view] website:

1. Download historical Canadian headlines and related news stories (24h worth, using code r/cn) to a CSV file. New CSV files should be created for every 24h worth of news, while a file format of:

"DJ News [url removed, login to view]" where [url removed, login to view] is the date the news corresponds to.

Each news story should appear on a new row. The fetch time should be stored in column A (yyyy/MM/dd HH:mm:[url removed, login to view]), the news story time in column B (same format), the headline in column C, and the story in column D. All commas in any of these fields should be replaced with semi-colons.

Once the historical news has been downloaded, I then want the application to:

2. Continue to add real-time headlines and the related news stories to the CSV file. As new stories show up on Dow Jones this tool should automatically add them to a new row in the file and save it. The delay for this should not be more than 5 seconds. When the date changes, the file should be closed, and a new file created with the date format specified in part 1.


The news stories automatically refresh themselves in a browser as new headlines come in. I have attached an image of what the website looks like when you are logged in, and will provide username and password information to a qualified bidder.
