For those following the cancellation of the Lutheran broadcast Issues, Etc. the real numbers are in.

How Large Was the Issues Etc. Internet Audience?
The Quantcast website keeps traffic information for over 2 million websites. One of the sites that they monitored traffic for was IssuesEtc.org
The Quantcast traffic stats are VERY revealing. They show that IssuesEtc.org was receiving over 12,000 unique visitors a month. That is FAR and AWAY a bigger figure than the 1,600 listeners that Strand claimed listened to the show.
As the saying goes, "There's something fishy in Denmark."
