Academics from the University’s have conducted news audits for every General Election since 1992.

The audit for 2024 is concentrating on the main television news bulletins on BBC1, Channel 4 News, Five News, GB News, ITV and Sky, alongside print coverage from The Daily Express, The Daily Mail, The Daily Mirror, The Daily Star, The Daily Telegraph, The Financial Times, The Guardian, The I, The Times and The Sun

The reports provide commentary about the week’s coverage and systematic measurements of which politicians and parties received the most coverage, the proportion of negative and positive coverage of candidates and parties, which issues received greatest prominence and the amount of coverage given to the election.

Weekly reports will be released on this site each Friday, running right up to election day. Read about the methodology used for the reports.
