NEW YORK — More hot issues in the news, according to a new study by Bloomberg News.
Researchers analyzed 554 national headlines in print and online news, and compared those headlines to a database of hot topics and news items for each.
The hot topics database included news articles from The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, ABC News, USA Today, CNN, CNNMoney, Bloomberg and other outlets.
Most hot topics had headlines that included the word “hot,” but some of the hot topics were hot topics that were not explicitly labeled as such, the study found.
One headline included: “Feds Say Man Was Charged for $1.2M to Save Firefighters.”
The other headline: “A Fiery Battle Between Firefighters and a Black Man.”
And in some cases, the headlines were not even in the same news outlet as the hot topic.
“It’s not that hot news has gone away,” said Dr. Jessica D’Amico, co-author of the study.
It’s just that we have so much information now about hot topics.
There’s not a lot of information about them, she said.
What do you think of the research?
“This is really an interesting study,” said Laura Haines, director of the University of Minnesota’s Center for Information Technology and Innovation.
“I think it will have some important lessons for policymakers about how we use social media to communicate about the news.”
