    It’s Possible No One Will Read This Column
    Here are some of my most-ignored pieces this year.

    … I’m not allowed to give page-view numbers, which are proprietary, but suffice it to say that a typical Trump column doesn’t just do 20 percent better than a Venezuela column, but at least three or four times better.

    (We have data only for page views for online articles. We really have no idea what is read in our print editions, and what lines bird cages.)

    As I look through my list of clunkers, one lesson is clear: Trump sells, and international stories don’t, especially when they are about humanitarian issues and aren’t embarrassing to Trump.

    Let this be a lesson to ye writers, write about Trump, and how naughty he is.

    could it be that everyone knows your Venezuela columns are extremely biased?

    I assume NY Times readers are there for the bias.

    Venezuela is fucking boring. That Nicholas Maduro is still in office, I atleast thought someone would have JFK'd his dumb communist ass by now after that failed drone assassination attempt.

    True, but when you get right down to it is it really any more boring than Trump?

    If you had literary pretensions, like Galm, you'd just make up some shit like all those fake "true story of inside the white house" books various jedis have published.

    I just wish there was more news on Jeffrey. I've literally exhausted all articles on the guy. Ever since he appeared on the scene I've been fascinated. More to do with his fortune and what he has on his associates than his predilection for young girls.
