Reader preferences

An unfortunate commentary on the news diets of the reading public – even what remains of the newspaper-reading public …

A piece in the Slog recounts the 10 most-read (online) articles for the year in the Seattle Times:

“That’s six stories about death [murder celebrity, blizzard], two about the weather, one about sports, and one about Microsoft’s new logo. Those were the top ten stories in our state’s paper of record. During a presidential election year.”

Not a happy commentary.
