    what major networks?

    If you're referring to FAUX News, that's not watched by thousands of progressives, so doesn't count really.

      "Cliven Bundy" and ...

      Fox..............56,800 results
      CNN.............23,200
      BBC.............11,500
      MSNBC..........9,150
      ABC..............6,100
      CBS..............4,890
      NBC..............4,420
      Al Jazeera......1,400

      That's

      1. Not a controversial skew given past observations on this and other conservative heartthrob issues
      2. It debunks the notion that 'no one but Fox' is covering such stories while capturing the aforementioned skew.

      This experiment has the added value of being reproducible

        it's not compelling.

        Cliven Bundy and his scrawny cows are just not high on the concern list for millions of Americans.

        Only in Bloggo World is this a gigantic issue.

        •  They're still making news with the death threats (0+ / 0-)

          And now the Utah governor is somehow involved.

          And a Nevada Senate candidate is working Bundy into his campaign.

          Last I checked, neither of these gentlemen frequent DailyKos. :)
