Top stories of 2012? You decide!


As WHQR's Webmaster, I spend a lot of time analyzing and evaluating WHQR.org's online traffic. One thing that interested me this year was the amount of views our WHQR News stories were getting.

The list you're about to see is the cold hard data - the top ten most viewed stories by our online audience this January 2012 - December 2012 period (from most popular to less popular).

What I would like to know is:
