2019’s Who’s Who Of News

20 December 2019

To wind up the year in news, Streem have produced a ripper of an animated chart showing the evolution of the major newsmakers’ year as they appeared in Australia’s 20 leading news sites.

Made with Flourish

Some observations: we love our sport; former Labor leader Bill Shorten’s fall in the rankings was almost as hard as it was in real life; and US President Donald Trump sure gets a lot of coverage here in Oz. You can check it out here.

Have we got a Year In Review for you… Have a read of the biggest news stories of each month in 2019, and then test yourself on The Great Big Squiz Quiz 2019 – it’s 25 questions covering the big events of the year.
