Default BronyCon in the news

Wow, the BronyCon made the homepage on Yahoo!'s website. Gotta say that's a bit of a shocker.

Here are the permalinks in the image:
Kids' TV show attracts a macho audience; Meet the Bronies
Convention scenes (includes interview with Lauren Faust)
Shop for 'Pony' items
'Pony' show speaker

(Now how long until someone rages that the My Little Pony toy is not from G4?)

Wow, the community's getting so much publicity now. I can really see it's more that a show. If this convention sticks around for another 6 years I might have to swing by and see how great it is in person.

Cyrus* 9:05:56pm ...I am going to regret bringing this up but an article on Bronycon made the front page on Yahoo ._.
Fubab_107 9:06:43pm Was it about a fire?
Quadcentruo* 9:07:29pm Cyrus definitely wishes it was about fire.

Hmm, Fubab has good senses...unless he already read about it.

The July 6th episode of Erin Burnett OutFront spotlighted BronyCon and bronies in general during the segment The Number.

Unusual for a widespread news outlet, CNN shone a relatively-positive light on the brony phenomenon. Also, Erin Burnett decided to cave into the pony craze with her OC pony "Erin Bro-Nett".

Ugh, a Rarity recolor? Really, Erin? Everyone knows Rarity is worst pony.

Pretty interesting to see the Con appear on CNN, especially when they're mostly known for having way too much political 'news' (rather, gossip).
