For each quarter, we  1  how many stories in the New York Times and the Washington Post include the word "recession".   2   bells were set  3   by the sharp jump in the "R-count" in the first quarter of this year, at a rate that in the past has   4   the start of a recession. In the second quarter,   5  , the number of articles 6     by more than one-third. A conspiracy theorist might suggest that newspaper editors,  7   about dwindling advertising revenues, have  8   the R-word.
