Last week Clark sucked media share primarily from Dean. This week he sucked it from pretty much everyone else (especially Kerry and Gephardt) as he now moves into second place. Next week will be interesting to see because it will be the first time Clark and Dean will be going head-to-head against each other for the #1 spot. I think it will be tough for Clark as stories about Dean's Q3 fundraising numbers will once again turn media focus on him.

I thought this might be the first week I had to drop someone but apparently the reports of Graham's dropping out were premature.

Sharpton may be getting a bit of a boost this week with the stories about Rush's problems at ESPN. When it comes to topics of racism, Sharpton is near the top of most reporters rolodexes.

The following is a chart of the Google News Media Share over the last few months.

You will get different results as the numbers are constantly changing. I make absolutely no claim that these numbers have any real meaning.)
