News Dots

Most news is inter-connected by various degrees of separation. People, places, story lines — very often overlap. News Dots visualizes how recent topics in the news fit together, like a giant social network.

Subjects—represented by the circles below—are connected to one another if they appear together in at least two stories, and the size of the dot is proportional to the total number of times the subject is mentioned.

To use this interactive tool, just click on a circle to see which stories mention that topic and which other topics it connects to in the network.
