What is the Chapel Hill American Media Project (CHAMP)?

The Chapel Hill American Media Project  is an effort of faculty and graduate students at UNC and other universities to collect and analyze data about political media in the United States, including who provides political coverage, what topics receive attention, and how political issues are framed to the wider U.S. public. Currently, we are focusing on news related programing aired between 2000 and 2014 on major television channels. The data currently consists of a collection of text transcripts and associated metadata from 2000-2014 that includes daytime and evening news and talk shows on ABC, CBS, CNN, FOX News, NBC, MSNBC, and PBS.
