  •  Bump during the gov shutdown at the end of 2013 (6+ / 0-)

    Interestingly, no bump at the time of the Snowden revelations. I guess we all thought it par for the course.

    •  Ah, good catch! (3+ / 0-)

      And I agree, Snowden is still a subject of diverse opinion and didn't drive traffic.

      The massacre of young children at school was a massive shock for everyone. Not sure why you'd assume the shutdown was the driver of a spike rather than that mass shooting.

        Because it was the driver and the shooting was not. I'm looking at the data without sentiment, which is how data should be analysed. I'm not rendering judgment on the moral question. You can also note the width of the spike, which correlates to the shutdown period.
