Wonkmetrics, 3-31 to 4-6

Ezra Klein lists top op-eds in each morning’s Wonkbook. I’m collecting the authors and sources. I’ll be doing this weekly and keeping running totals. Here’s this week’s, now with prettier formatting!

Also, here’s a link to running totals with authors and sources in different sheets, which are too big to display conveniently.

No notes this week because the temptation to generalize after a small sample is too overwhelming. TOO OVERWHELMING

Notes:

Krugman and Brooks are probably the most well-known liberal and conservative bloggers out there, so it may be interesting to see going forward whether they’re linked to more often than other bloggers/opinionators. Soltas has the only other two, and he helps assemble Wonkbook, so that’s interesting. Also, apparently if you just read NYT and Bloomberg op-eds each morning, you’ll have a pretty good grasp of the best op-eds of the week, or at least what you’ll say were the best op-eds of the week if you want to impress Ezra Klein at parties.

Next week’s will add running totals. Maybe after a few weeks I’ll make a publicly visible gdoc so people can access this very important project.

PS – Dibs, dudes.
