What a surprise bit of mail today from The New York Times in my inbox: stats as for my Times’ reading habits of 2017. I am surprised I had that much time.
It is the era of digital journalism.
It is also the era of data everywhere looking you straight in the face. Such was my surprise when The New York Times congratulated me for the amount of reading I did with its content in 2017.
A neat little package with blue numbers that tell a story. Perhaps I am reading too many opinion pieces (maybe everyone is doing the same in the era of Trump), and I had no idea I had such affinity with an op ed columnist named Frank Bruni (although I find him to be spot on most of the time).
Take a look here as the numbers tell the story. Considering that The Times is only one of about four newspapers that I take turns looking at daily (The Washington Post, El Pais –Spain), La Nacion -Argentina) ) are the others, I imagine that I am not your average newspaper reader by far.
Here is how the Honolulu Star Advertiser played the very local story of a false nuclear attack alarm.
