ET In the News: Midterm Election Edition

ET In the News will be a recurring feature of ET Professional, providing a ready list of news, blogs and articles most indicative of the broader narratives surrounding a topic. In advance of tomorrow’s elections, we are providing readers with a free preview.

Below are the 10 articles most connected to and representative of the map of more than 60,000 stories between September 30 and today referring to U.S. midterm elections. These are not the ‘best’ articles, and they are rarely the most ‘read’. They are simply the most indicative of the language and context used across the various narratives and sub-narratives being promoted about the midterm elections.
