Many of us here are refugees (emigrants?) from TOP (the other place).
A recurring question is how much has “abusing Bernie fans” cost TOP in views (and obviously income)?
There are different metrics, but one metric freely available from quantcast show a decline of 44% in “Global Uniques” from a high for the period of March 8th through April 6th 2016, to the current reporting period of May 7th through June 5th.
I could be wrong, but I think that global uniques refers to the number of uniquely indentifiable users visiting a site (basically IP addresses, plus a cookie or something).
The highest day in that date range is Sunday, March 13, 2016, when there were 2.5 million global uniques. I think this must have been the day of the edict, or there about.
The lowest day in that date range is Monday, May 30th, 2016, Memorial Day, when there were 268 thousand global uniques.
The average daily global uniques has declined by 500,000 in the last month alone.
By any objective measure, the decline in viewership at TOP is monotonic and precipitous.
I imagine after Tuesday, and especially after people find out they can get BNR here, TOP’s site statistics will be even worse.
Don’t be surprised if a certain someone gets a job from a certain presidential candidate. If elected of course.
