Since it dethroned The Huffington Post late last year, the most visited news and media site has continued to be Yahoo News, with over 35 million more viewers than The Huffington Post, for the month of January. Meanwhile, many traditional news sites performed far worse. Google News, FOX News, and The New York Times came in eighth, ninth, and 10th place, respectively, for total visits to their sites. Paradoxically, Yahoo is considered essentially worthless by Wall Street investors. Learn more about this semblant contradiction in the SavvyRoo link in the source box below the chart!
