In the world of media, five sources (+/-) isn't "well covered." When something is well covered, it's reported by (literally) thousands of sources--including internationally. This is especially true due to the ubiquitousness of the Internet, where something reported by NBC, ABC, CNN, The Washington Post and the Associated Press is cut-and-pasted by HUNDREDS of jeernalists.

If you go back into Google archives of June 2007, you'll see that this speech was BARELY covered. Thanks to The Daily Caller, it's being covered now 10:1 over June 2007 coverage--possibly more. The Drudge Report does a good job of disseminating lesser covered tidbits, getting as it does multi-millions of hits daily.
