How the Media Balances Coverage of Two Important Stories

From The Poynter Report with Tom Jones:

We are in the midst of two major news stories: Russia’s attack on Ukraine and the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.

The media — especially the news networks and major publications — are juggling both stories, either of which would thoroughly dominate the news cycle if not for the other.

On Tuesday afternoon, the main headline on The New York Times website was: “Russia Cracks Down on Dissent as Invasion Stalls.” The websites for The Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, NBC News and USA Today all led with Russia-Ukraine.
