Visualizing CNN’s National Security Debate

I created this tag cloud by eliminating most of the irrelevant words from a transcript of last night’s national security debate and this is what resulted. Notice the emphasis on “Iran”, “Israel”, “war”, and “nuclear”.

Number of times the following words were mentioned:

War: 52
Iran: 45
Israel: 35
Nuclear: 31
Afghanistan: 30
Pakistan: 28
Syria: 20
China: 13
Mexico: 10
Iraq: 7
Egypt: 5
Yemen: 0
