Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You

If You Worry that Your Blog Doesn’t Get Enough People Commenting, Rest Easy. Mainstream Syndicates Also Have Low Comment Turnout.


I came across a story this morning that instantly piqued my interest. Germany’s Fertility rate at 33 year high. I wanted to know what the Mainstream news had to say about it. Specifically the mainstream web sites outside of Germany. I wanted to see if they had positive things to say about it, or negative reviews. I read the articles.

-Immigration is the key factor for the surge in birth rates.

-Even geographical areas where immigration traditionally played minimal roles in birth rates were places that were included in the study.

-Germany needs a strong younger generation to replace the aging German population.

Government talking points! Am I right? Only governments highlight the above three issues, in place of the real crisis that average Germans fear. The dissolving German identity!

The comments section from ABC, and the Washington Post:

The Times of Israel has not posted a story on this yet. Times of Israel is staying quiet on the issue. I came across an article about Julian Assange that caught my attention.  the Julian Assange story is HUGE right now. I mean HUGE. But readers of the Times of Israel were not interested.

By contrast, the Guardian’s article on Germany’s fertility rate solicited many many comments. This should interest you.
