    Pretty interesting look at the most popular media sites on a state-by-state basis. But I think it's only tracked if you access the sites via bitly, if you type WashingtonPost.com directly into your browser it may not show up on the search.

    That map is crazy wrong.

    My state, 2,000 miles away from California, has SF Gate as the third most popular.

    Most popular is USA Today, which I won't argue with, followed by the NY Times.

    Washington Post is No. 10 on the list.

    SF Gate is the #4 on line newspaper in South Carolina? Is Clemson playing Stanford this week?

    The Guardian No. 2 in Texas? Must be all them Messkins reading up on futbol coverage.

    The correct answer for all 50 states is "Porn". This site is invalid.

    I think, for whatever reason, a lot of links to AP stories go to SF Gate. Seems like every time I click on a link from Yahoo or AOL/Huff Post, that's where the story is.

    One thing I noticed raises a big red flag. Is that just the rankings in each state among those 10 papers? Every state I clicked on has them arranged in some order. I have a hard time believing, for instance, that the Seattle Times doesn't at least crack the top 10 in Washington, or NOLA.com in Louisiana, or Philly.com in Pennsylvania.

    Hard time believing Denver Post isn't top 10 in Colorado.

    Because it's only ranking 10 papers, not all papers.

    I was going to post a joke link to Porn.com . Be forewarned.

    The No. 2 television/radio station in South Carolina is BBC. I'm not buying this.

    The magazine listing's for W.Va. are the 10 listed off to the side...

    Rankings for West Virginia(viewing by currently selected state)

    1. The Economist
    2. US Magazine

    5. National Geographic

    The fact People, Mad and the National Enquirer are not on this list is uber-fail.
