GOP Primary Leads the Pack in News Coverage


By Chris Ariens Comment

The PEJ has found coverage of the 2012 presidential race reached its second highest level of the year last week. Coverage of the primaries accounted for 27% of the newshole on 52 different media outlets from the print, online, radio, network and cable TV sectors. The Iraq War which officially came to an end last Thursday with the final troops out of the country by Sunday, accounted for just 8% of coverage.
