Guardian writes 20,000 words on US presidential race - in a week

The Guardian helpfully counted up the number of words written on the US presidential election in UK newspapers last week (to Friday). The scores are: The Guardian, 20,864; The Times, 14,881; The Independent, 14,622; The Telegraph, 14,050; the Daily Mail, 7,132;The Daily Mirror, 3,769 and The Sun, 930.
