Below is a visual dashboard summary of broadcast television news coverage of your search using data from the Internet Archive's Television News Archive. While the index is updated every 15 minutes, broadcasts take 24-48 hours to become available for search, so results for the past two days are incomplete. Refresh this page again in 15 minutes to see the most recent updates. Displays work best in Google Chrome.
All visualizations are powered by the GDELT Project's TV 2.0 API using data from the Internet Archive's Television News Archive. Technical users will find "export" options on each of the visualizations on this page that allows them to download the underlying CSV/JSON/GeoJSON data for further visualization/analysis and to view the HTML code that allows them to embed each individual visualization on their own web page - the embedded visualization will update each time it is viewed/refreshed to display the most recent data as of 15 minutes prior (though broadcasts take 24-48 hours to become available for search).
The displays on this page summarize coverage returned by the following search:
Data Source: Internet Archive Television News Archive
Human Summary: "Michael Brown" AND (Station:CNN OR Station:MSNBC OR Station:FOXNEWS) AND PublicationDate=2009-Present
The volume timeline below shows the percent of all news programming airtime on each selected station monitored by the Internet Archive over the selected time period that matched your search. It offers a quick visual gauge of how much news attention your search is receiving on each selected station. Only news programming is monitored (commercials and entertainment programs are excluded, though some commercials may slip in). The total monitored airtime of each station in a given day/hour is broken into 15 second intervals and the timeline reports the percent of those 15 second clips that matched your search. A single mention of your keyword in a given 15 second interval will count as the entire 15 second interval, so keep in mind that the results are counted in terms of 15 second intervals.
Move your mouse over the timeline to see the value for a given day/hour. You can also zoom into a particular time period by clicking on the timeline and dragging to the right or left to select that date/time range. The entire Television Explorer display will then refresh to reflect just coverage from that zoomed-in time period. In this way, if you see a large peak in coverage on a particular day, you can zoom in and see what that coverage focused on and where it came from.

Advanced users can use the "View Normalization Graph" option under the Export button to view the total airtime per day/hour monitored from the selected stations by the Internet Archive (note that days with less than 100 clips are automatically excluded from results).
The station chart below shows what percent of news programming airtime (in 15 second intervals) monitored from each station by the Internet Archive matched your search. This allows you to directly compare how much attention each station is paying to a given topic.
