Casey Anthony Top Newsmaker Last Week

According to the PEJ, Barack Obama is no match for Casey Anthony. Last week Anthony was the top newsmaker, getting mentioned an astonishing 101 times out of about 900 stories surveyed from 52 different media outlets. Obama, despite holding a summit about something called “the national debt,” came in second, with 73 stories.

Let the record show that America – or at least America’s newsrooms – care more about some woman they’ve most likely never met before than a national crisis that impacts pretty much everything and everyone.

If you’d like to start shouting “USA! USA! USA!” now, please do.
