When President Donald Trump nominated 10th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court, it opened the media floodgates. As Judge Gorsuch’s nomination moved through the Senate Judiciary Committee and then to the full chamber, the already intense press coverage amplified even further.
Given the wall-to-wall noise, it was that much more difficult to track what was being said about the proceedings, who was saying it and where it was being said. The ability to proactively and swiftly monitor local radio is an enormous asset. While some conversations may take place on cable news networks or in national press outlets, it is at the local level – and on the radio specifically – that US Senators, advocates and citizens alike will make news and press their arguments most forcefully.
Given the thousands of local radio stations in states and markets across the country, keeping track of conversations can be difficult, time consuming and leave you with less than all the facts. Veritone Politics provides our clients the ability to keep tabs on what’s being said with in near-real-time. Using our proprietary platform, we offer coverage where and when you need to keep on top of news as it breaks with AI capabilities such as transcription, face recognition, and sentiment analysis.
Now that Judge Gorsuch is Justice Gorsuch, now is the time to prepare for the next big political fight in Washington, whether it be healthcare, taxes or infrastructure. Knowing who to track, what to track and where to track it is imperative to the success of your campaign.
