Not as bad as I thought… June 10, 2007Posted by gordonwatts in politics, science.
Getting counts of articles from Google news:
Paris Hilton: 10,422 hits
summit: 45,995 (clearly has more than just the G8 meeting)
G8 summit: 14,028
I had fully expected there to be more hits on the Hilton thing than the G8 summit. On the other hand, it looks like Hilton and the G8 summit are almost as important as each other… Now, if I’d used a blog search engine… Wait. I found one (I’ve heard that it isn’t the best one out there, but I don’t know which one is):
Paris Hilton: 3,732,295
G8 summit: 97,387
proton: 1,755,143 (not sure what they are all talking about!)
Fermilab: 16,219 (but the top post is that @&#^^@ rumor).
So, it is clear that all the presidential candidates need to have thought out the whole Paris Hilton thing – it is going to matter to the voters!! Or is this just a comment about what happens when editors get involved?
