Media Addicted To Electoral Coverage?

And it will only get worse:

Almost half of all media coverage last week, 49 percent, was devoted to the New Hampshire primary and the presidential campaign.

That may not seem surprising until you see that the second-most covered story, President Bush’s trip to the Middle East, received just 4 percent of the coverage.

Peace in the Middle East? Whatever! Give us excruciatingly exaggerated claims of campaign racism any day!
