Alterman has devolved

As a reader pointed out, Eric Alterman was reaping the benefits of the entire MSNBC domain in the last few runs of the Ecosystem — his host was ‘msnbc.com’, which meant his count was way off, including (ironically) links to Glenn Reynolds’ and even George Will’s work there.
Alterman already had a correct entry that only used his http://altercation.msnbc.com URL, so I deleted the bad one. This is an imperfect solution, as many folks link to the temporary URL for each of his posts, so now he’s being undercounted. But given that there is no rhyme or reason to those URLs, there’s no way for me to definitively test whether they go to him or Glenn or somebody else doing work at MSNBC. So, oh well.
I also did a few other obvious corrections where folks were getting overcounted, so you’ll see some other adjustments. Keep the feedback coming…
