When reading Western newspapers, I often find myself questioning the bias with who and where the staff cover. Often with media, there are many current journalism sources that do not necessarily cover newsworthy events, simply because of place or audience. After analyzing the New York Times front section, information is presented to show the newspaper's coverage through geography, page space, and word count. The poster is meant to be read in three different ways that are color coded in order to gain a greater understanding of the coverage within the front section. Advised by Nicholas Felton and Paul Soulellis.
Data was collected by searching up the articles online and taking the word count after readjusting for edits as well as calculating page space. Collected data for each article within the front section was put onto a spreadsheet and categorized by location and whether or not the news was considered international, domestic, or as an advertisement. Page space was collected separately and merely calculated in percentages.
