    Blogospheric silence

    From time to time, it's curious to see what spanish bloggers is not talking about, instead of what they do talk about. This time they're not talking about this:
    A Muslim cleric who wrote a book that advised men how to beat up their wives without leaving incriminating marks has been sentenced by a Spanish court.

    Checked weblogabout, the Spanish feedster. Nothing. Checked feedster. Nothing.
    However, the spanish language Google news feature it prominently; there are no less than 56 newsitems. And 62 in English (not all of them refer to the same thing). It's even on the NYTimes, for goodness sake!.
    Maybe it's just not the kind of thing that interests bloggers.

    God, JJ,

    Are you crazy? You will destroy the spirit of DiceLaRed, trying to guess, what the Net does not say.
    Seriously. One of our hobbies, is trying to detect gaps between media and people worries. This closed loop "media talk about people interests, and people worry about media push", was specially clear with the Prestige', that reached third position in CIS' barometer, in december '02.

    Yep, but there's method in my madness... I'm writing it in English :-)

    De: JR Fecha: 2004-01-16 03:12

    Well, I wrote about it this evening.

    And, indeed, I'm interested on it.

    Feedster doesn't like me, sure. ;-)

    Of course, I should have looked there first. Thanks for the link.
    Have you read any other story? Why do you think nobody else has written about it?

    I saw several articles down there in Google News, in English, but didn't read them in deep. Nothing new, as far as I can tell you. You may see the Libertad Digital's link where Islam is not well considered at all.

    About Spanish bloggers' lack of interest, I truly don't know its reason. Either it could be one of those situations where a crowd is talking loudly and weirdly quiets in silence. Or, in the other hand, everybody thought this new was so obvious and self-explanatory that it was not necessary to jot some aditional notes.

    Who knows. In any case, remember that there are not many spanish blogs about political affaires, and that their authors are busy people. Unlike me, yeah.

    Being basically a vespertine blog I didn´t have time to comment on that yet, but certainly is an interesting issue. Anyway, I appreciate the silence, as it means that most of us don´t feel concerned for the freaky muslim menace.
