Web archiving has received increased attention in the popular media over the past few years. The Internet Archive's Wayback Machine, which can replay past versions of web pages, has been mentioned in news articles in the New York Times and the Washington Post and has been highlighted by MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and HBO's John Oliver. The Wayback Machine itself has been the subject of articles in the New Yorker and The Atlantic (in 2015 and 2017).
