News Monitoring Software

Hello.  Not really a tech question but I am having a difficult time finding this and I thought I would try here.  There are news monitoring services like Critical Mention that charge a monthly fee to track articles online and in social media.  I don't want to pay a monthly fee for this.  I want to buy the software directly.  Does anyone out there know where this type of software can be purchased outright.  Thank you in advance.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Not sure you'll find software that does the same as Critical Mention for a one-time fee. Here's a list of other offerings

Have you tried using WordPress with the free PressForward plugin?  Pressforward, from what I know of it and its' creators is excellent and does much of what you want.  I admit to being slightly partial as one of the creators is my son :-).

Most of the tracking news are based on services or own subscription alerts, that is most of what you can find which I though addictomatic is not a single bad candidate. But if you are looking fro s/w to install, then maybe news crawler is something you probably have to consider instead.
