Head of the Class: The Most Buzzworthy House Freshmen of the 112th Congress

By Eric Ostermeier on September 19, 2011

Allen West, Joe Walsh, Tim Scott, and Sean Duffy are the most covered U.S. House freshmen of 2011

While nearly eight-dozen new members entered the U.S. House of Representatives in January, only a choice few have become media darlings (or fodder) nearly nine months into their first year in office.

In fact, three Republicans have received more than one-third of the coverage of the entire Class of 2010.

And two of these are the GOP’s only black Americans in Congress.

A Smart Politics content analysis of Lexis/Nexis news transcripts from ABC, CBS, CNN, FOX, MSNBC, and NPR finds that Republican U.S. Representatives Allen West (FL-22), Joe Walsh (IL-08), and Tim Scott (SC-01) have received as much attention as 70 of their freshman colleagues combined.

(Note: Lexis/Nexis transcripts cover most news programs on the cable TV networks, but not all morning and early afternoon programming (e.g. MSNBC)).

Representative West has been interviewed or mentioned in 222 news programs since January of this year – by far the most of the freshman class.

That accounts for 17.9 percent of broadcasts in which any House freshman has been mentioned on these networks.
