Getting headlines from many years ago

Hi, I seem to be having trouble using get_news_headlines for dates farther than, say, Jan 2018.

headlines = ek.get_news_headlines(
            "US stocks IN ENGLISH",
            count=100,
            date_to=curr_date.strftime(DATE_STRING_FORMAT)
        )

where curr_date is something like datetime.datetime(2000, 1, 1).

Does the API go back that far?
