Go to digg.com’s US Elections 2008 section and scroll through the items there. All the items have over a thousand ‘diggs’. What’s interesting is that almost none of those articles come from any of the major news outlets. Moreover, it is very rare to find an article on Mr. McCain that is positive or an article on Mr. Obama that is negative. I also find it interesting the disproportionate number of articles from Huffington Post that get so many diggs. Are the writers at Huffington Post really that good? ThinkProgress.org also appears to get a disproportionate number of their articles on the front page of Digg.
Do you suppose that Huffington Post and ThinkProgress.org are gaming Digg.com?
