'Millennials' Emerged In The News In 2011 And Became Popular At The End Of 2013

The words "millennial OR millennials" have become household terms today, but when did they first come into prominence? The timeline below shows mentions of the two terms on CNN, MSNBC and Fox News July 2009 through present, showing that they first came into tentative being in mid-2011, but really took off in late 2013, hitting their peak the month Donald Trump was elected, crashing down and then gradually ramping up. Historically Fox News mentioned the terms more than its two peers, though that is slowly changing since mid-2018.
