The volume of news articles about protests in the U.S. over the killing of George Floyd by police is dwarfing the coverage of other recent protests.

There were four times as as many articles carried on the Bloomberg system about the Black Lives Matter protests as there were about re-opening the economy.

There was a large volume of news coverage of protests in Hong Kong during the second half of 2019, but it started more gradually.

The volume of news coverage is a news analytic some Bloomberg clients use to gauge the intensity of interest or engagement around an event.

A note about the data: the Bloomberg professional terminal carries news articles from more than 175,000 sources in 40 languages.
