Despite all the attention that the Times‘ McCain piece got today, as of 6:14 p.m., it has been emailed less on nytimes.com than stories like, "Most Americans Are Giving up Golf," "Celebrating the Semicolon in a Most Unlikely Location," and another called, "Gentlemen, 5 Easy Steps to Living Long and Well." The McCain story doesn’t even appear in the top-10.
The Times oddly doesn’t register its "most viewed" stories, but if you take a look at its most blogged it gets way newsier. The McCain story is no. 1, Castro is no. 3 and there are two pieces on Pakistan in the top-10.
So what does that tell us about people who hit the "email" function?
