A Week - One Week Later

Articles appear in popular magazines.  While these articles also tend to have a strong emphasis on a reporting style, they can also provide a general discussion and perhaps and editorial opinion that reflects the slant of the magazine.

Examples: 

General magazine articles:

Thomas, Evan. "How Bush Did It." Newsweek 15 Nov. 2004: 34+.

Schmidt, Peter. "Affirmative Action Survives and So Does the
  Debate." Chronicle of Higher Education 4 July 2003: S1.

Subject-focused magazine articles:

Dickinson, Tim. "The Youth Vote." Rolling Stone 11 Nov. 2004: 50+.

By limiting your search to the weeks following an event, you can find articles that were published soon after an event occurred. HINT: If an event was sufficiently significant, there may also be articles published on the anniversary of the event.
