What The Media's Covering.
A month ago, I started checking Google News for various words and word combinations to see what was getting coverage in the press. This has very little to do with objective reality, but is a fascinating (to me, anyway) index of what's hot and what's not. I'll continue to update this over the coming months as we come in on the election. (For example, I'm tracking potential presidential candidates and their press to see who may be heating up, but it's far too early for it to mean anything.) Here's a first run.
________________________ 4/21_________5/25And just because it caught my eye, a bonus. When I combined "Bush" and "impeach" I got exactly 911 results (down from 1,200 a month ago). Eerie, yes?
Bush + lying ____________4,330 _______4,340
Bush + illegal__________16,000_______40,500
Republican + corruption__4,760________5,530
Democrat + corruption____2,890________3,640
