We use an original panel dataset to explore the impact of economic pressure on the way journalists report terrorism. This dataset combines data about terrorist attacks in the U.S., presidential endorsements by newspapers, ownership and profit information, and public distrust of the media with tone scores for randomly selected articles on terrorism from 20 newspapers spanning 1997 to 2014. This publication includes a Stata data file (in dta and csv formats) as well as an appendix with a description of variables and selected tables and figures.
