Media Coordinator Update, May 2014

Before I go into this month’s English-language numbers, I’d like to offer my congratulations to Erick Vasconcelos, C4SS’s Portuguese-language media coordinator, who has identified a whopping 137 pickups of the Center’s material (either original in Portuguese or translated to it) this month! I haven’t seen updates from our other coordinators for this month yet, but it’s clear that C4SS is making huge global inroads with readers of languages other than English.

On the English-language side, so far this month I have logged 35,832 submissions of C4SS op-eds to 2,642 publications around the world, and identified 52 “establishment media” pickups of, and one citation/link to, C4SS material.

Two high points:

  • That citation/link I mention above is from The New Yorker. Aside from its prominence as an American print institution, it’s in the top 1,000 most popular web sites in the US and in the top 2,500 worldwide (according to Alexa, the reliability of which I am aware is much disputed).
  • We penetrated two new (for us) media markets this month — Fiji and Jamaica.

So, are we happy? Well, yes — but we’re not going to be resting on our laurels. Our goal is to convey the market anarchist message to every audience, via every available vehicle, worldwide, 24/7. We’re not there yet, but we’re definitely making measurable progress. Thanks, as always, for your support!
