One of the comments made by bulletin board/Twitter morons that I always find mystifying is: "Oh, you guys are just trying to get page views."
No kidding, Sherlock. Why wouldn't journalists want to be read? And read widely?
The assumption might be that we're printing clickbait, along the lines of "This WRN holder invested in CTAG: you won't believe what happened next!" and that the stories are nonsense.
But we're obviously not. We're printing documents, we're talking to sources, we're waiting around for RNSs at no-one-is-watching o'clock. You know, the sexy stuff. The boring stuff.
And this week, it's resulted in year high banner page views and reader numbers.
So, dear reader, feel proud that you are reading one of the few publications that prints real journalism. And we'll feel good cashing those big online advertising cheques.
