Can the Downing Street Memo catch the Runaway Bride® before the end of June??

Anyone who has visited True Blue Liberal in the month of June knows that I have been tracking three search terms on The first check was just to document the point that the MSM were totally ignoring the DSM, but the trend has been surprisingly positive lately.
Here are the results from 9:00 am edt on 6/29/05 compared to my first check at 8:15 am edt on 6/2/05:

"Downing Street Memo" -- 2,220 hits (UP almost 1,000% and rising consistently from 288 hits on June 2nd).
"Runaway Bride" -- 2,840 hits (DOWN from 5,260 hits on 6/2, and at least a few of of the new stories are about generic runaway brides in Kenya and the Carribean, not our celebrity and soon-to-be-trademarked Runaway Bride®).
"Michael Jackson" -- 30,900 hits (UP from 21,400 hits on 6/2, but trending downward from a high close to 50,000 right after his trial) .

Hey Kids!Have Fun! Keep checking the links. The Downing Street Memo will never get as much coverage as the former lead singer from The Jackson Five even if it does lead to Bush's impeachment, but the Runaway Bride® only has a 600 hit lead! Will her fifteen minutes expire before the DSM loses its head of steam? We should do everything we can to keep the pressure on.

OK, so doing the same news check on "Natalee Holloway" gives over 10,000 hits and proves the point that the "News" media have latched onto her as their Missing Blonde o' the Month, but I don't think she was even a glimmer in the eye of the tabloid (print and electronic) editors at the beginning of June when I began this comparison.
