"one from a major US news outlet."
I am fairly certain that PBS is NOT one of the news outlets that has sold links in exchange for page rank.
And no, I had nothing to do with getting that link. They just happened to like the content because it was something similar to a PBS documentary they made at the time.
(for those not in the USA, PBS stands for Public Broadcasting System.)
I think i might also have a link from Huffington post to that page as well. Again, never had anything to do with the link. they just happened to link to it in the course of one of their posts.
