Sarah Palin and Donald Trump Top 2012er Blog coverage

Which Republican presidential candidates are getting the most attention, favorable or otherwise, from the media these days?

Actually, it depends a great deal on just which type of media you’re reading.

In traditional media outlets like The New York Times, these five candidates are receiving the most coverage: Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, Haley Barbour and Tim Pawlenty.

The list looks quite different, however, if instead you’re reading about the nascent campaign in the blogosphere.

Ms. Palin has a much more dominant presence there, receiving about 30 percent of the overall coverage on blogs — more than three times as much as any other candidate. Mr. Gingrich also receives a fair amount of blogosphere attention, ranking fourth overall, but his share on blogs is smaller than in the traditional media.

The Full Story is HERE.

It's my opinion that Palin has been seen in a positive light via Google. More than 75% found on the internet related to Palin speaks the truth about her, and it's not pretty. She is also the only "candidate" who can be regularly found in online celebrity rags ( not presidential. I am thankful for Google, without it we would not know the truth about the quitter. I hope my comment doesn't cause a squirmish.

As long as your comments aren't personal attacks on her or her family, you are fine.

As to her being called a "quitter", yes, that is open to debate.

Much of what you find in most blogs is fantasy. What a great atmosphere for Palin and Trump and their supporters to excel.

I guess some people become news while others create it.

Ann, It makes me wonder if these two are part of some weird on line reality game along the lines of 'Second Life'?

Larry nailed it. Batboy better look over his shoulder because Sarah and The Donald are on his heals.
