Dear C4SS supporters,
I mentioned last week that I’d be ratcheting down the tempo of submissions to US newspapers, and I have. Between that and it being a short “holiday” week in America, they came down considerably: 6,579 op-ed submissions to 2,648 newspapers. I expect a slight rebound upward for next week.
So far this week, I’ve detected five “pickups” — reprints of C4SS commentaries in the “mainstream” print media:
- The Bakersfield, California Californian ran Ross Kenyon’s “Tax-cut policy on a bumper sticker” on November 19th.
- On the 22nd, the Tehran, Iran Times and the Oxford, Ontario Review ran “Torture: The Great American Export” by David D’Amato.
- My own “Dim Bulbs Seek Bright Lines: The LA Times vs. American Travelers” appeared in the Caroll County, Maryland Standard on the 23rd.
- The Deming, New Mexico Headlight ran Kevin Carson’s “The TSA is Evil AND Stupid” on the 24th.
Last weekend’s “Op-Ed Boot Camp” had two active participants (due to an error on my part regarding time zones, there may have been more who showed up for the initial conference call an hour early) and produced at least one completed op-ed. No word on whether or not it’s been published yet. I’ll have information on next month’s “Boot Camp” session for you in my next report.
Have a great weekend — but first, please take a moment to support the Center’s work!
Yours in liberty,
