Jason Kottke notes the difference between the New York Times most blogged and most emailed articles – the most blogged is far more political than the most emailed.

Interesting, the top searches readers have done at the New York times are closer to the blogged stories. And Colbert’s up near the top – just as he was on Technorati after his speech to Bush that was all but ignored in mainstream media – at first.

Honestly, if The Colbert Report and The Daily Show were broadcast here, instead of just soap operas and harmlessly funny talkshows like Letterman, Norwegians rather un-nuanced and media-driven view of the USA couldn’t help but change radically. Whoever’s in charge of the US’s image abroad should get on to it.

    Well, there’s always grassroots action by way of torrenting…

    That’s what I’m told, anyway. Not that I’d ever do it myself, oh no.

    Actually, Canal+ broadcasts the Daily Show every day, live. And it has a reprise of an old show every day as well.
