It's an indictment of the US Media's worship of Obama that we get more accurate news from abroad than from the American media. It used to be called the "main stream" media. It has sadly become the "fringe" media. Their motto could be: All Obama, all the time!
Most Traffic Growth To UK News Sites Is Coming From U.S.
We’ve often written about how UK newspaper sites get a healthy number of visitors from the US, mainly via Drudge Report referrals (see Neil Thurman’s academic study). Now web measurer Hitwise says traffic to Brit news sites from across the pond is growing nearly seven times as fast as that domestically. (To view a breakdown chart, click here.)
Analyst Robin Goad says Drudge is still the biggest aggregation referrer to UK news sites (bringing 10.6 percent of visits in August), followed by Google (NSDQ: GOOG) News (5.3 percent). But Google search is still the big traffic giver (13.5 percent); email’s a big referrer, too.
