If you've ever been reading SF Gate comments and had the image of a old man sitting on a porch wearing long pajamas and brandishing a shotgun, well, you've got some data to back you up now.

According to a new report published by Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism, SFGate.com attracts more male than female readers, and only 22 percent of its readers are aged 18 to 34.

And that's worse than Fox News!
The study analyzed the nation's top 25 Web sites, including the Huffington Post, CNN, Los Angeles Times, and the Wall Street Journal. While Examiner.com, HuffPo, and MSNBC.com attracted far more women to their sites, 59 percent of SFGate's readers were men.

Which might explain these comments from Chronicle readers:

"I've had many years experience working with women who have consistently had a hidden agenda and undermine team work. I'd rather work with men."

"It's really not nice to call the first lady a cow. She looks more like some kind of spider demon in that picture. Especially when you consider that she has circus-freakishly long arms and legs, and a butt that looks like the abdomen of a black widow spider."

"Ah yes, the she-devil cometh."

Shocking! but also proof why the gate and the chron are dying and are not relevant to local politics or events as they used to be.

It's no secret that hard-right blogs & message boards link their readers to stories at SFGate and encourage them to post their views there.


Who possibly could have guessed?
