Skip to comments.Final Tally: Americans Were 12 Times More Interested in Miley Cyrus Than Syria
Posted on 09/09/2013 11:49:42 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
That Miley Cyrus captures more attention than escalating war in Syria is, by now, conventional wisdom. But an exhaustive survey of news sources now reveals exactly how much attention Miley steals: Americans viewed twelve times as many pages about Miley Cyrus as they did about Syria even though the news sources published 2.4 Syria articles for every one about Miley.
Outbrain supplies "related links" modules to a network of 100,000 publishers, including major news sources like CNN, Fox News, and ESPN. On any given day, 87 percent of Americans who browse the web will view a page with an Outbrain module, explains the company's vice-president of global marketing. They collect traffic data from every site in their network, which they use in a variety of algorithms to generate recommendations.
In the three days surrounding Miley's VMA performance and the Obama administration signaling its willingness to bomb Syria, Outbrain's network generated 8,104 stories about the former and 19,568 about the latter. The day after the VMAs, Miley Cyrus stories accounted for 12 percent of total U.S. page views, while Syria stories accounted for 1 percent.

Hugh and Syria!
And we thought Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance was shocking... well, she isn’t through yet.
Here’s her latest video ‘Wrecking Ball’
What is worse is that a large percentage of the people don’t see anything wrong with Mylie’s quasi-pornographic performance.
This is why you get Obama elected.
Well, there is a similarity between the two. Both Obama’s floundering insanity on Syria and Miley Cyrus’ putrid slut-dance each demonstrate an America in severe and ever-quickening decline.
Anyone remotely attuned to this country’s history of greatness and exceptionalism can’t help but wake up each morning in 2013 and be embarrassed, if not downright aghast at how far America has sunk into the sewer.
Like I said in another post. Americans DO NOT CARE. Syria will blow over and no one will care one whit about ODimwit’s incompetence.
In a way that is a very sad commentary.
The situation in Syria is horrific. I have heard Syrian Christians in my part of town relay horrific stories of this war from relatives back home.
Hundreds of people being gassed should always be a bigger story than the latest skank du jour.
But at the end of the day, nothing we can do. No side to pick and no winners here.
Well, wasn’t Cyrus Syrian?
RE: Well, wasnt Cyrus Syrian?
If you’re referring to Cyrus the Great, who allowed the Jews to go home from exile, NO, he’s PERSIAN ( which is to say, Iranian today ).
I hope you’re not referring to Billy Ray and Miley Cyrus... :)
What do you expect when a figure held up as a model for young people reaches such a shocking low point?
But enough about Obama...
I’ve cut Syrian bread out of my diet. Wasn’t the boycott enough?
Just announced on the Pentagon Channel.
Congress authorized a strike.
