A Bulletin on Bulletins: TiM’s Global Coverage in 2000 Exceeds Record
Set in 1999
PHOENIX, Jan.30 - With the NATO bombing of Serbia and the subsequent Kosovo “peace farce” being the focus of world news media and public in 1999, the last year of the 20th century was easily the busiest on record for the Truth in Media. That’s when the TiM Bulletins added up to about 424,780 words, 1,416 pages and 524 images. It was a three-fold increase from the year before, and it seemed unbeatable. It was difficult to imagine that a small publisher would top such editorial production in the near future.
Yet thanks to the U.S. and Yugoslav presidential elections, and the mounting tensions in many other regions around the world, the TiM output even in the first year of the 21st century has already exceeded the 1999 record, even without cataclysmic wars, like Kosovo. Last year’s TiM Bulletins totaled about 427,169 words, 1,424 pages and 190 images.
Since the TiM web site was launched in July 1997 through
Dec. 31, 2000, the 395 TiM Bulletins we had published in that
three-and-a-half-year period added up to about 1,088,905 words, 3,630
pages and 862 images (see the tables and charts at our web site).

In 2000, once again our coverage of the Balkans affairs dominated other topics, accounting for about 41% of the total TiM Bulletin words. Global, American and Russian topics added up to 18%, 14% and 11% respectively of our global coverage. Other world regions represented the remaining 16% of the TiM Bulletin words.
