Williams makes the Drudge Report

April 20th, 2010 at 8:16 am by David Farrar

The Herald on Sunday story on North Shore Mayor comparing himself to Jesus (and General Custer) has just made the Drudge Report.

The embarrassment has just gone global?

How big is the ?

The largest US newspaper, USA Today, has a circulation of 1.9 million copies a day. The New York Times has a circulation of around 900,000 a day.

The Drudge Report received 23.3 million visits in the last 24 hours.

So millions of people will now have read about Williams comparing himself to Jesus and posting photoshopped photos of the Local Government Minister as Hitler on Facebook.

Thank God there are only six months to go.

    Mmm, I dunno Drudge has Williams on there, but it also has the upcoming tax cuts & the tax cuts mention NZ unlike the Williams headline, so I think NZ comes out on balance better than ok in todays Drudge Report.

    Are you really that concerned about a Mayor in a city you dont live in?
    He makes good copy, enjoy it while you can.

    Congratulations Andrew Williams
    You are now an international disgrace as opposed to national disgrace

    20/07/2010 – 12pm: Can’t find the Williams article on the front page of Drudge Report. Our reputation is probably not as in peril as you think.

    …As if this was ever about genuine concern for NZ reputation. Come off your high horses.
