Media Headline Analysis of former President, Jacob Zuma

In light of the resignation of president Zuma, we decided to do a quick analysis of Jacob Zuma in the Headlines since 2015. Accordingly, we extracted over 14000 headlines that mentioned our President over a 36 month period. The total headline count for the same period is just over 460000. This means that Zuma accounted for roughly 3% of all media headlines. Clearly however, most of the headlines that did mention former President Zuma, tended to have high levels of prominence.
