Recession Mentions Are Down Across Television News

After peaking in July, mentions of "recession" on television news are down sharply.

Looking just since the start of this year, recession typically is mentioned just a handful times a day.

Looking at the total seconds of airtime in which it is mentioned in the onscreen text, on many days it appears for just a few seconds the entire day.

While business channels remain elevated in their mentions, even their coverage is off significantly from earlier this year, though it has been increasingly slightly.
