NZBC says so.

The CIO story linked to in the NZBC blog post is a good read too, as it puts things into perspective. Odd place to publish it though, CIO.

Stupid blog tool they use... No link to their "home" so I can't check other posts. Therefore can't waste my time reading that blog.

Goodbye.

It's Blogger... and while the logo's not clickable, there's this at the end of each post:

Home

Doesn't the Home link work for you?

the US figures are from June 2006 out of this article and I added The Guardian figures from February this year

Nitpicking I know but when posting graphs that provide comparisons, I'm not sure it's really kosher (or accurate) to use figures from 7-8 months apart in the same graph.  For all we know, the NY Times may have had a larger readership than The Guardian in Feb 2007. 

Wonder how the Herald rates...

While I can't recall the correct reader numbers now, Herald Online is doing pretty well - to the point that its advertising revenue exceeds Herald on Sunday.

Good point about using data collected at different points in time.

I'm a BA - it's my job to pick holes in other people's work. Wink

"Old Media Rocks the Web" (original headline) may be right but "Rules" not so, compare any newspaper site to blogger, wordpress.com and livejournal or youtube to any major tv network site and you'll see they're all trailing citizen media.

And don't get me started on CIO linking their story across seven pages...

Well, YouTube has content from the major TV networks, and I doubt it has the audience of the large broadcasters yet. I guess if you compare a single news "paper" (seems a misnomer that) site to a big bloghost, then yes, it won't have as many visitors. You could've just said "MySpace" in fact - that's probably the biggest of them all.

But the point is... the web is building old media's audience, not decreasing it. People want to get their news from journalists, and blog. Or do you get all your news from blogs then?

Yeah, that was... excessive.
