NPR Reports on Puppygate

A nice report (just under 13 minutes) on NPR entitled "The Sad Puppy Takeover" reports on the furor surrounding this year's Hugo Awards nomination.

Incidentally, after declining from the initial huge spike on Finalist Announcement Day, it appears that traffic to TheHugoAwards.org is still running at more than quadruple the pre-announcement levels. April 2015 will be the busiest month in the history of the web site, exceeding the traffic from last August. I am so glad that we changed site hosts last month. Our previous host was warning us that we were already approaching traffic levels well above what they were prepared to handle, which was why we moved. If we hadn't done so, I expect that our old host would have started blocking calls to the site entirely.
