The lines on this chart show the percentage of “breaking news” alerts that mentioned “Russia,” “Putin,” or “Kremlin,” as of the corresponding date on the x-axis, for the New York Times and the Washington Post. (In other words, they show the total number of Russia-related alerts as of that date divided by the total number of alerts as of the date.) Though the Times sent out fewer alerts total over the last year than the Post did, a greater proportion of their alerts were Russia-related.
