Sarah Palin’s Copenhagen-Bashing Op-Ed One Of Most Read WaPo Opinion Pieces Of The Year

Greg Sargent reports on his blog that Sarah Palin's piece on the credibility of the scientific community consensus on anthropogenic climate change
was one of the most-read WaPo opinion pieces of the year, coming in 21st in page views out of literally hundreds of opinion articles. An earlier Palin Op ed in the paper on the same topic was the third most read of the year.
So is the Washington Post seeking to provide the best quality information to its readers or to bring a lot of eyes to its copy in order to make a lot of money? And if the latter, do you want your eyes to be included in that calculation in the future?
