Looking Backward: repubHub Articles that Drew Reader’s Attention (and Horror) in October

Written by Andrew Elston | Nov 09, 2017

Each month we take a tally of the hottest news and features syndicated from repubHub in the prior month, as measured by page views from across republishers’ websites. Looking backward is an opportunity to reflect on where we have come from and where we may be going—and gives editors a snapshot of what grabbed readers’ attention.

October began with the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, in Las Vegas. It ended with a terrorist attack on Halloween, in New York City—the deadliest such attack since 9/11. These two horrific events bracketed a month that was especially newsworthy. We look back on articles syndicated from repubHub that had significant coverage of those events—as well as others less bloody.
