Really not sure of their methodology on this. The article complete with pie charts rates the amount of news coverage dedicated to ten major topics. The topics are; Accidents, Corruption, Crime, Economic & Business, Govt & National Security, Health Advisories, Human Interest, Local, Sports, Weather & Travel.
Some of the categories make no sense, just what is a "local" story any way? Do they mean something like Chronicle? Or a guide to events in the city? It looks as if there were no stories of Accidents or Corruption during the week of the survey. Which I find confusing, because Lawrence Mayor William Lantigua has been in the news pretty steadily for not doing either job his constituents voted him in to.
