MediaTakeOut Headline Generator from Robert Elwell I love MediaTakeOut. So I decided to make a language model for it. I ain't copywriting shit, all this open-source software is legit. I don't mind if you look around the code a little bit. mto-scrape.py Run this first. It grabs headlines from MediaTakeOut. It's really that easy. Takes <1hr. mto-analyze.py Run this to get some statistics about what you pulled. You need the sentences.prepped file it generates to run your language model. mto-languagemodel.py This actually builds out the fake headlines. Because I'm lazy and I'm using NLTK's Text and NGram language model classes. I'm just writing to a file from stdout to get my sentences. Options are provided in this, so take a look. generated.txt Here's an example of headlines. Take a look at it in action at http://robertelwell.info/mediatakeout-headline-generator/ Requires NLTK with the punkt and stopwords dictionaries downloaded.
