"Panama Papers bubble chart shows politicians are most mentioned in document leak database"
Sorry if that sounds grumpy, but if that involves such gross misrepresentation, I can't say I am happy to see our data getting such diffusion. The original blog post by Finn Årup Nielsen was fine, the Independent article stilll sort of ok, but what seems to get public success is the bullshit title and the decontextualized graph https://twitter.com/search?q=panama%20bubble%20chart&src=typd
