Who Gets the Most Media Attention?

Which Candidates are getting the most media coverage? Are Republicans or Democrats stealing more headlines? Does Mitt Romney or Hillary Clinton have more Reporters trailing them? Well, now we can find out.

Thanks to an earlier comment about Ahmadinejad possibly facing impeachment, I have discovered a website called Trendio. It is supposed to be a type of stock-trading game, where you trade words rather than companies. Trendio calculates the number of times each word appears in the media, and then valuates or devaluates each “stock” as required.

From now on, I will be using Trendio to see just how much attention each of the nineteen current Presidential candidates is getting. Trendio is not perfect, and some Candidates who are not generating major news are not listed. In these cases, I have put their stock price as “n/a.”

I’m sorry for the rather boring ticker, but it is hand made. I will work on a better style for next time.
