The economic crisis on Wall Street is being described as the final pop to a bursting economic bubble. But in the realm of politics, the grim news may have snapped another: namely, the media attention that accompanied Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s rise to the national stage.

A Nexis search for Palin’s name within the “major newspapers” category during the week before Monday September 15 — when the stock market dropped more than 500 points — yields 2,697 results, representing an impressive haul of coverage. (By contrast, search for “Joe Biden” over the same period and you will only find 613 articles vying for your attention.) But, counting from last Monday, the same Palin search on Nexis turns up 1,866 hits, a decrease of just under 31 percent.  Source Article
