CNN Appears To Have Finally Wound Down Its Covid-19 Tracker To Just An Hour A Day Or Less

Feature Charticle

The timeline below tracks the total seconds of airtime each day since the start of last year that CNN's Covid-19 dashboard has been displayed onscreen. Originally displayed for 9 hours a day, CNN has temporarily phased out its dashboard several times over the course of the past year when other events overshadowed the pandemic. Interestingly, since January 1 of this year, CNN appears to have finally wound down its tracker, displaying it for less than an hour most days the last two months, marking the longest the channel has gone with such reduced visibility for its dashboard.
