What is This About?

This guide identifies many of the most important and/or popular online news sites.  It is divided into two sections:

  • Major Born-Digital News Sources   A fairly brief list of some of the most interesting and innovative born-digital news sites, based on a series of articles by Michael Massing in the New York Review of Books.
  • Top 50 Online News Entities    This much longer list is based a survey in early 2015 of the most heavily-used news sites.
