Description of my final project

Project Name: NPR News Analysis

With NPR’s broad reach and reliability as a news outlet, the organization’s influence on public sentiment is critical in establishing a “more informed public.” We explored the sentiment of what has been said on NPR broadcasts over 15 years, and went on to create a predictive model of whether an utterance was spoken by an NPR host or guest--valuable in an age where reputable organizations have to take an active role in ensuring that their content is not misrepresented or worse.
