Looking at the Huffington Posts' "World" section, I noticed an interesting difference between the number of comments and the nature of the articles. I thought I would share them (as of 9 pm last night):
British Politician Apologizes For Bloody Sunday-88 comments
Children DIE While Parents Watch World Cup-54 comments
Hitman Stopped On Solo Mission to Kill Bin Laden-1,252 comments
Somali Fans Executed For Watching World Cup-663 comments
Worldwide More Than 12 Million "Modern Slaves"-5 comments
"Several Hundred" Kill in Kyrgyzstan-21 comments
Bangladesh Landslides Kill at Least 47-1 comment
100,000 Uzbecks Flee Kyrgyzstan-130 comments.
And then we have:
Ireland Expels Israeli Diplomat-870 comments.
Less than the Bin Laden hitman but more than all of the others, include Somali executions. I guess the HP knows which news stories really draw in the viewers, don't they?
