July 22, 2021EdgeTheory

The life expectancy narrative has been amplified by 158 U.S. media sources across 186 unique narratives in the last 30 days. The New York Times, NY Post, and CNN are the leading amplifiers of this narrative.

The life expectancy narrative accelerated in the last 24 hours after public health officials announced that the average U.S. life expectancy fell by 1.5 years for white Americans and 3 years for black and Hispanic Americans in 2020. This was largely due to COVID-19.
