My point was just about the types of newspaper stories one tends to see
around the times of those organizations' annual meetings, not about whether
they are comparable organizations to AoIR or each other.  Regardless of the
other factors, MLA and PCA seem to inspire plenty of newspaper stories of
the "Look at what silly, irrelevant things those wacky academics are
studying now!" variety.  Conferences devoted to papers about Bruce
Springsteen get the same sort of coverage.  As Nancy says, mocking
academics.
