  •  While I share your schadenfreude, Kos (4.00)
    Look over 6 months; it's cyclical.

    Odd enough to me, though is I really don't need Kos when I have Stephen Roach and Brad de Long and Maxspeak.

    But Roach gets way, way fewer hits even now.

    I'd think be rising on the charts "with a bullet" now that the NY Times is pay-for-play.

      And I thought we were the reality-based community.  Kos failed to provide the relevant transition date, and purposefully selected a time range that supports his theory.

      As you say, if you look at a longer time period, this most recent month looks like any number of other months.  Time will tell, but it's too early for Kos' statements to hold water.

      That said, I generally agree with him that the NYT is making a number of seriously bad decisions each month now.

      The funny thing is that using the tool to check dailykos and daily kos shows our own precipitous decline in the month of October.

        Heck you can't expect Kos to be perfect.

          Intelligent debate isn't stiffled on this blog.  That, and we don't turn our blog leaders into gods (at least most of us don't).  We all make mistakes.
