It’s The Economy, as the Most-Covered News Story of the Week

The economy — and more specifically the Occupy Wall Street protests — reclaimed the top spot as the most-covered news story last week, according to the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism. The PEJ found 22% of last week’s newshole — on TV, radio, newspapers and websites — focused on the economy; a third of that on Occupy Wall Street.

The 2012 election was the next most-covered story, followed by the death of Steve Jobs and the acquittal of Amanda Knox.
