Anyone heard of the Tiger Woods Index (TWI)? Note related to the jokes above. This index is quite cool. It’s a Google-derived measure of what people are interested in vs what the MSM think should be interesting.
It’s essentially a ratio, calculated by taking the general Google hit count for a term, and dividing it my the number of News site hits for the same term. Here are some examples:
The higher the ratio, the less the MSM think the topic is important. The lower it is the more it’s being pushed by the [online] MSM. Not sure what measuing stick Google uses to determing which sites are searched for ‘news’, but this index is kinda interesting regardless.
