The Guardian, which didn’t carry out the analysis but contracted it, was actually the source included in the survey that mentioned both terms in the same story most often. Still, it only did so in 38 percent of all cases. The analysis also found that mentions of financial relief were more common in connection to stories mentioning drought. The combination was found in 7.6 percent of stories. The same goes for mentions of Prime Minister Scott Morrison (6.4 percent) after he had taken office.
