Media Coordinator Update, 11/18/11

Dear C4SS supporters,

This week, I’ve submitted 8,129 Center op-eds to 2,772 publications on six continents, and have detected four pickups/citations:

  • “‘Austerity’ in Practice,” by David D’Amato, ran in the Dhaka, Bangladesh New Age on November 13.
  • The Deming, New Mexico Headlight published my piece, “Herman Cain: If He Did It …” on November 14.
  • On November 15, Monga Bay (a popular conservation/environmental web site) cited/quoted Kevin Carson’s C4SS research study, “The Decline and Fall of Sloanism.”
  • Finally, on November 17, the Carroll County, Maryland Standard made David D’Amato’s “Addicted to Incarceration” the Center’s 400th media pickup since we began tracking in June of 2010!

That’s a little better than one pickup per weekday on average. Throw in weekends, it comes to one pickup about every 1 1/3 days. We’ve had pickups in (by my possibly imperfect count) 28 countries on six continents, and in 26 US states and territories.

As far as my goal of reaching 500 pickups by the end of 2011, that’s not looking so good … but we’ll keep trying, and I won’t pretend I’m not proud of what we’ve accomplished so far.

Please — help us keep it up! We don’t ask for a lot of financial support, and we do a lot with what we get. The Center’s 4th Quarter 2011 Fundraiser “chip in” widget is visible in the sidebar of every page at Pick a number — perhaps one of those from the statistics I throw around above — and send us that much. If you value having the market anarchist message broadcast worldwide, I think we’re giving you your money’s worth.

Have a great weekend!

Yours in liberty,
