On Television News Covid-19-Based Racial Discrimination Gets Little Coverage Outside Fox News

Television news coverage on CNN, MSNBC and Fox News has paid little attention to racist incidents, especially against Asians, due to Covid-19. The timeline below shows mentions of "(coronavirus OR covid OR virus OR flu) AND (racist OR racism OR discrimination OR discriminate OR racial OR stereotypes OR xenophobia)" on the three stations using data from the Internet Archive's Television News Archive. Fox News has covered such incidents 3.1 times more than MSNBC and 3.3 times more than CNN, with a spot check of a random sampling of its coverage suggesting it has been largely dismissive of such incidents.
