How many viewers are watching some popular news shows on Cable? Now, ask yourself how many hits would your favorite Blog receive for a new post, such as a hoax email prank? How many people would you say actually heard Ksue’s rantings on Blog Talk Radio about who paid Crystal $12,000?

If you have no idea about what I am talking about, then a number of things are obviously true. You did not manage to stumble across that email hoax, that Tj Hart has been complaining about. And, you apparently did not hear on Blog Talk Radio what got Art Harris so upset about Ksue.

I will ask you a couple of simple questions. Compared to the typical number of viewers watching cable, how many people can hear Cyber Paranoia on Blog Talk Radio, and still amount to absolutely nobody? How many people can stumble across an email hoax on the Internet, and still amount to nobody?

I am wagering that anything that exists in reality can be quantified. Certainly, these simple questions can be.

I have developed an Excel Spreadsheet that computes what the numbers actually are. I have defined nobody to be a measly 3 percent or less of the viewers actually watching some popular news shows on cable, on a typical Monday night.

How many Blogs and Blog Talk Radio shows do you know that even come close to achieving these numbers?

It is my position that nobody actually heard Ksue’s comments about who paid Crystal the $12,000 or has seen this so-called email hoax. Did you?
