Bug Description

Please implement some sort of repeated automated check of data on (and ideally daily too).

Run the tests at the end of a publish, and/or randomly throughout the day, and report failure very loudly.

2 checks that I'm aware that can easily be done (and have broken in the past) are:

 This will show 'BAD_URL' for anything that doesnt exist. it essentially stats all urls.

 the 'validate-images' command was added. I'm not exactly sure of its syntax, but it can be run to assert that its view of the world is fine.
