Top 50 news sites

Which are the most influential news sites? The tech site Technorati has tried to address this by compiling a monthly list of the news sites most often linked to by blogs, and it is interesting. The majority are old media online. The top ten are:

YouTube

New York Times

BBC News

CNN.com

MSN

guardian.co.uk

Washington Post

Yahoo! News

Reuters

Los Angeles Times

“We know the independence and immediacy of the blogosphere has had a huge impact on mainstream online media. Much is made of the tension between the two – but what we’re seeing is convergence, and a symbiotic relationship,” says Technorati.

Question: is it legitimate to rank YouTube first or is it actually just a network of sites? If you disaggregate it, shold you disaggregate the Guardian byline by byline? Good discussion on this (and other new mediaish topics) at TechCrunch.

Technorati will publish this monthly.
