Delanos’ Chimp cartoon goes viral
We’re a tightly connected world. Sean Delano’s cartoon that was published Wednesday was echoed throughout many “spheres” (blogosphere, twittersphere, etc.)
A Google News search results in over a thousand stories published on the cartoon, a Google Blog Search results in over 3,000 blog posts on the topic.
It’s a bit harder to get a hard number for the number of “tweets” in the Twitterverse, but here’s a chart showing the spikes in the conversations.
NPR has produced a segment about it. You can listen to the piece.
A PIX news story mentions that today at noon there will be a demonstration outside the NY Post’s offices in Manhattan. Yesterday civil rights leaders gathered to voice their displeasure with the printing of the cartoon.
Ted Rall will join Eric Deggans, media critic for St. Petersburg Times for an online chat to discuss the cartoon and its ensuing reaction.
