Visualizing The Emotions of American Television News 2009-2016

Back in October 2014 we released a massive dataset and interactive visualization of the emotional undercurrents of American domestic television applying a very early prototype version of GDELT 2.0 to the Internet Archive's Television News Archive. We are tremendously excited to announce today the unveiling of a new reimagination of that original vision of news as emotion, this time running from July 2009 (the launch of the Archive's TV News Archive) to May 5, 2017. The complete GDELT GCAM massive pipeline is applied to the full closed captioning transcripts of each news broadcast on each of the English-language television stations monitored by the Archive. Explore the emotional undercurrents of American television!
