Pope eclipses Tsunami, Sept. 11 attacks

Paul JJ Payack, who runs The Global Language Monitor Global Language Monitor out of Danville, CA, has done some homework on how much media attention has been given to the death of Pope John Paul II. He reports, in an email to Times political reporter Lisa Vorderbrueggen, these statistics: At the Time of Funeral, Media Outpouring Reaches 12 Million Internet Citations and 100,000 Stories in Worldwide Media. The coverage eclipses the South Asian Tsunami, the September 11th Terrorist Attacks, the Bush Re-election, and the Deaths of Ronald Reagan and Princess Diana.

Hi Chris,

I like the Blog so far. Some of it is down right funny, as when YOUR newspaper is not deleivered! I hope you keep it up to date from now on, as it gives us a great insight into the East Bay's only hometown paper!
