Coverage of the Anthony Weiner scandal was last week’s most-covered story, filling 17% of the newshole according to the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism. It ranks as fourth all-time since PEW starting tracking news in January 2007 (the scandal surrounding former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich is No. 1).
1) I wonder how much would Bill Clinton’s sex scandal have eaten up if PEW was tracking things then?
2) Is it odd that I expected Weiner-gate to take up more of the newshole?
