I skim the Seattle Times print edition each morning because it's there on my driveway each morning, but otherwise virtually all my news about the world comes from the internet. Here's a Nielsen list of the top on-line news sites:
|Wall Street Journal Online||6.9|
|New York Post||4.7|
|SFGate.com/San Francisco Chronicle||3.8|
|Daily News Online Edition||3.3|
|Village Voice Media||2.8|
|The Houston Chronicle||2.7|
|International Herald Tribune||2.6|
|Atlanta Journal Constitution||2.4|
|Chicago Sun Times||2.2|
|Seattle Post Intelligencer||2|
|Detroit Free Press||1.5|
|The San Diego Union Tribune||1.4|
There it is, the Seattle P-I web site scores higher than the Seattle Times, which doesn't even make the top 30. It even scores higher than the San Jose Mercury News (Silicon Valley's newspaper).
I wonder how much of the Seattle P-I score comes from their news department and how much comes from their popular blogs (like Todd Bishop's Microsoft blog).
