It’s not news that the news media is focused on President Trump. But this week, we saw a big spike in their conversation about the president.
Washington, D.C. journalists and pundits mentioned Trump 904 times on Twitter over the last week. That marks a 46% increase from their weekly average of 618 Trump mentions so far this year.
Was this last week an outlier or the beginning of a trend of increased presidential focus? We’ll keep monitoring to find out.
