I can’t tell you how many different times and ways I’ve tried to get Tikun Olam linked or featured at media websites. Sites like Salon.com, Slate.com, Nytimes.com, Truthdig, Huffington Post, you name it, and I’ve e mailed them about my content. No takers. Perhaps I don’t get enough traffic or I don’t have enough “juice.” I dunno. I’ve also suggested this blog to those who write blog roundups at those sites. No dice. Then along comes the Financial Times website writing a blog roundup of reactions to Google’s admission that it censors Chinese search results. What do you know, there I am with a “favorable mention:”
“’Don’t be evil’ indeed. Google needs a few lessons in living up to its founders’ motto. It is certainly complicit in evil nowadays regarding its behaviour in China, said Richard Silverstein on Tikun Olam.
And I didn’t even ask for it! But I’ll take it gladly. Maybe this gets me into the right ballpark and other media sites might start taking some notice?
Congratulations Richard. I am a regular reader (and subscriber) of your blog. It’s so nice to read exactly what I’m feeling about issues. Keep up the great work.

There is a lot of hypocracy out there. Not much you can do to get your stuff out (just keep trying). Trust me, I know what you are going through I am trying to do the same thing you are. Read my blog, we are kindred sprirts.
