Mining Bird Flu Data

Here's an interesting example of text mining news coverage.

A recent analysis by the Factiva Reputation Lab (TM) shows that while bird flu may be a very serious issue of concern to the entire world, it's not getting the press coverage of other issues. For the past two years it has (not surprisingly) been dwarfed by coverage of natural disasters, terrorism and the war in Iraq. But it's not even reaching the coverage of obesity and AIDS.
