As Global Demands For Coal Soars Media Coverage Remains Largely Flat

As global demand for coal soars in response to skyrocketing natural gas costs and availability concerns, media coverage is barely changing. Mentions across CNN, MSNBC and Fox News have barely changed since the start of the war and remain on par or below their previous levels over the last few years.

Business channel mentions have increased compared with the last few years, but not by a major margin, suggesting a disconnect between the rapidly growing economic importance of the energy source and media attention to it.
