A Tool To See What Media Is Covering

Posted May 14, 2019 by Bill Wheelhouse

Our IBA Newsroom Tip Of The Week comes from Samantha Sunne at Tools For Reporters.  Be sure to sign up for its mailings.

You can use Media Cloud to search the text published by news outlets to see what they’re covering.  Sunne says “There’s a LOT of claims out there about “the media covers this, the media is ignoring that,” and it bugs me to no end that there’s a tool out there that actually measures that, and no one uses it.”

Media Cloud is an open source tool that helps you with research or deal with someone’s comments that nobody ever covers an issue near and dear to them.

Add the Media Cloud to your mix and get on that Tools For Reporters mailing list.
