Dean shoots back up with coverage on the confederate flag flap, the announcement that he is opting out of the campaign finance system and the SEIU and AFSCME endorsements. His media share this week (22.3%) is an all time high for any candidate in the Google News Poll. Dean's jump siphoned off coverage from most of the rest of the field, excepting Kerry and Clark, who probably got a lot of their coverage in stories that were talking about Dean's march to the nomination.
As an aside, I find it interesting that Kerry continues to have such a high share level compared to Gephardt. I consider Gephardt to be a much more serious threat to Dean than Kerry (who I think has already passed the point of no return). Gephardt easily has the second best ground operation out there and he is holding his own against Dean in Iowa. Yet the media appears to be ignoring Dick in favor of John. I wonder why?
