America may be evenly divided between red states and blue states, but the Huffington Post is handily beating Fox News for where most Americans get their online news according to a joint study by Bitly and Forbes.
The Huffington Post draws the most web traffic among online news sources in 22 states. Meanwhile, regional powerhouses like the New York Times, Washington Post, and Chicago Tribune serve as the last stand against HuffPo’s national dominance. Fox News wins out in Mississippi, Alabama, South Caroline, Nevada, and Alaska.
Just how big is the Huffington Post? The site gets a staggering 8 million comments per month and that number is growing quickly.
