The New York Times also calculated how much free advertising in dollars Trump has earned from the media's rampant coverage of him. The number came to...just under 1.9$ billion. That's a significant margin over the GOP candidate with the second highest amount of free media advertising. Cruz came in at $313 million. Bush garnered $214 million, and Rubio got $204 million.

For Trump, it seems like there's no so thing as bad media coverage as he heads into tonight's high-stakes elections in Florida, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina, and Ohio.
