So Should We Give People What They Want?July 15th, 2009 by Steven Gardner
Sarah Palin wrote against cap-and-trade policies in the Washington Post. The second paragraph included this sentence:
“Unfortunately, many in the national media would rather focus on the personality-driven political gossip of the day than on the gravity of these challenges.”
On this blog we have two recent entries about Palin. So far they’ve generated 50 comments. To get to 50 comments on topics other than Palin you have to go back 21 other posts.
If I were to base my posts on what draws the most comments, I’d be writing about Palin, Clinton/Lewinsky, or anything else that would boost comments and views. I don’t, and frankly I think in large part it’s because I don’t think you really want me to.
Am I right?
