Egypt news dominated public interest last week

From a new Pew Research survey:

While interest in Egypt’s violent political situation attracted only modest public interest last week, it was the most closely followed news. Interest in Egypt outpaced interest in all other news stories last week; including Attorney General Eric Holder’s announcement on policy changes intended to reduce prison sentences for non-violent drug offenders (17% very closely).

The public paid less attention to news about the U.S. stock market (10% very closely) and the U.S. Justice Department suing to block the merger of American Airlines and US Airways (7% very closely) objecting to restrictions on competition.
