Coverage of Wisconsin, Pre-Election

A quick search of the New York Times website for “Scott Walker” from August 1, 2010, until Nov. 1, 2010, yields nine hits.

Christine O’Donnell, the witch running in Delaware? She scores 162 during the same period.

Sharron Angle in Nevada? 131.

Sarah Palin? 280.

And back to those nine hits for “Scott Walker” — not one is a piece from the Times’ op-ed section. In other words, nobody of any notoriety  at the Times cared about the Wisconsin governor’s race, because these geniuses were too concerned with saving America from the likes of Christine O’Donnell. How’s that working out for you?

Elections matter, as does the coverage of said elections.
