Fair play to the Irish Times, they must have been inspired by Simon’s Paper Round project. But they have comprehensive graphs for media coverage on a range of factors. It looks like the ‘Enda’ campaign got Fine Gael the lion’s share of the coverage. But will his gentlemanly demeanour, get him the votes. Or will the Ali-on-the-ropes till a fighting last round routine keep in the bag for Bertie? H/T (once again) to Soupy!
