List of Tags

Media Cloud uses tags to indicate metadata about stories. You can include tags in advanced searching. 

Tags are used to mark metadata about an article’s content, such as entities mentioned and countries of focus, as well as information about the article’s publishing, such as date and media source. You can search for stories tagged with a specific piece of metadata by using the search field tags_id_stories (example, tags_id_stories:9362290, this will find stories tagged with the Vladimir Putin entity, which is tag id number 9362290). See the query guide for more on how to search.

Commonly used tags are list below by category.
