MediaMeter

What was covered in the news this week? Did the issues you care about get the attention you think they deserved? Did the media talk about these topics in the way you want them to? Who set the narrative for the current breaking story?

MediaMeter is a suite of tools built on top of the MediaCloud online news database. A number of tools make up the suite, all driven by a query you author to specify media sources, a date range, and some keywords.

MediaMeter Dashboard

The Dashboard shows simplified widgets to give a quick overview of an issue's media coverage and let users identify interesting trends for more in-depth analysis.

MediaMeter Focus

Focus uses a map to reveal which people and which words various media sources use when covering individual countries.
