Midterm Mentions Remain Muted With Just Four Months To Go

With just four months until what many in the media and punditry are predicting will be a party shift in Congress, mentions of the impending midterms on television news remain muted, without the surging attention one might expect given all of the importance being ascribed to them in the light of Roe, inflation, climate change and other key policy issues.

Over the past decade, MSNBC has focused more on the midterms than its peers.

Looking at the total seconds of airtime that the midterms have been mentioned in the onscreen text, mentions have picked up since late March of this year.
