This article is reporting that the editors of the Chilean newspaper Las Ultimas Noticias (The Latest News) decide on content based on the popularity of online articles. More page-views for a specific story will prompt follow ups and work on similar stories. This is a good idea for People and Us but a bad one for The New York Times--and one which I doubt they would ever adopt.
