The Ethiopian Conflict On Television News: US Versus The World
The timeline below plots the weekly airtime covering the Ethiopian conflict across a selection of US and international television channels since January 2018. The March 2019 plane crash received the most attention by far on American television news channels, with almost no mention of the current conflict. BBC News London is covering the current conflict at the same level it did the plane crash, while Al Jazeera is mentioning it about 50% more. A reminder once again of just how limited of a view American media provide about the rest of the world.
