Sentia Media index: Greens are nowhere to be seen

Andrew Wilkie shot up the rankings in a week dominated by superstorm Sandy, the US presidential elections and an Australian horse race, writes Sentia Media's John Chalmers.

Overseas trips have served the Prime Minister’s short-term rating well this year, so Laos and Indonesia may provide more of the same. Yet media attention for Julia Gillard is well down on the fortnight prior, putting her closer to the levels maintained by Opposition Leader Tony Abbott.

Much of this is due to the US election and superstorm Sandy flooding the airwaves, followed by all eyes on the Melbourne Cup. (It’s certainly not been about the race most important to Australia’s future, with Xi Jinping expected to take over the leadership of China for the coming decade when his party meets this Thursday).
