Tracking Easongate

Bill Roggio of Easongate.com dropped me an email earlier yesterday and asked if there might be a way to track how many blogs are talking about the Eason Jordan controversy. I thought it an interesting technical problem to solve (for a worthy endeavour), and gave it a shot.
You can see the results here: http://www.truthlaidbear.com/easongate.php
As of this morning, it looks like 438 blogs currently mention “Eason Jordan” on their front page, with a total combined Average Daily Visits of at least 721,687.
A few caveats:
– These stats only capture weblogs registered in the TTLB Ecosytem, so the count is likely somewhat higher in reality
– Only blogs which have public SiteMeter counters have their “average daily visits” included in the total
– The “Combined average daily visits” statistic needs to be handled carefully. I’m sensitive to not distorting what that number really means, so please do NOT say anything like “according to TTLB, over xxx,yyy people are reading about Eason Jordan”. We can state the total combined # of average daily visits, but we have no clue how many “visitors” — i.e., people — there are. I had to whack the NYT for this, and I want to make sure I don’t encourage the same kind of mistake myself.
And my perspective on the actual issue? Quite simple: Davos should release the tape, as many others have requested. Then we can all make a fair and well-informed judgement of whether Mr. Jordan deserves the benefit of the doubt, or the door…
