Transcription

1 This report reflects major trends in the average emotional context of global news media coverage of the world's heads of state as reported by the GDELT (Global Database of Events, Language, and Tone) (/) Global Knowledge Graph database. Each day, the average "tone" of all articles mentioning a recognized world leader is computed, from "extremely positive" (a value of +100) to "extremely negative" (a value of -100). In practice, given the massive variation in how world leaders are viewed across the globe, tone usually ranges between +10 and -10. Leaders are only included in a given day's ranking if they received sufficient news coverage during the previous day to yield a measurable tonal score. Tone synthesizes both emotion expressed about a leader and the emotional context of events the leader is currently involved with or being contextualized within. This report is provided as a highly experimental prototype service to demonstrate the use of emotional response and the other latent dimensions of the GDELT Global Knowledge Graph in examining global trends, so please use caution when utilizing its findings. Rank (Most to Least Popular) Name Country Average Tone 1 Andrus Ansip Estonia Pranab Mukherjee India Sheikh Hasina Bangladesh Ellen Johnson Sirleaf Liberia Hage Geingob Namibia Raul Castro Cuba Hassanal Bolkiah Brunei Juan Carlos Spain Li Keqiang China Nursultan Nazarbayev Kazakhstan Stephen Harper Canada Mariano Rajoy Spain Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono Indonesia Juan Manuel Santos Colombia Enda Kenny Republic of Ireland Barack Obama United States Michel Martelly Haiti Ali Khamenei Iran John Dramani Mahama Ghana Hun Sen Cambodia Abdelaziz Bouteflika Algeria Michelle Bachelet Chile Hamid Karzai Afghanistan Tony Abbott Australia Dmitry Medvedev Russia Jacob Zuma South Africa Mahmoud Abbas State of Palestine Hassan Rouhani Iran David Cameron United Kingdom Goodluck Jonathan Nigeria Benigno Aquino Philippines Angela Merkel Germany Vladimir Putin Russia Evo Morales Bolivia Shinzo Abe Japan Paul Biya Cameroon Paul Kagame Rwanda Bohuslav Sobotka Czech Republic Mark Rutte Kingdom of the Netherlands Najib Razak Malaysia Tayyip Erdogan Turkey Dilma Rousseff Brazil Viktor Orban Hungary Nawaz Sharif Pakistan Omar Al-Bashir Sudan Francois Hollande France Mahinda Rajapaksa Sri Lanka Nicolas Maduro Venezuela Viktor Yanukovych Ukraine Yoweri Museveni Uganda Alassane Ouattara Ivory Coast Rafael Correa Ecuador Bashar Al-Assad Syria Enrique Pena Nieto Mexico Amama Mbabazi Uganda Benjamin Netanyahu Israel
