FishbowlNY recently told you about Mail Online passing The Huffington Post as the most visited newspaper website, and now Poynter has the top U.S. news sites listed. The Yahoo! News Network comes in first with 86,635 unique visits per month, followed by CNN (80,202), MSNBC (54,245), AOL (47,221) and The New York Times (38,060).
As for other New York news sites featured on the list, Fox News comes in eighth place with 27,019 uniques a month, and The Wall Street Journal is way down the list at 15, with 15,541.
It should be noted that these are just composite numbers crunched by Poynter, and not official, but it’s pretty interesting. Oh, and The Huffington Post is actually in sixth place on this list, right behind the Times. Those two brands just can’t seem to stay away from each other, can they?
