BBC News maintains its large lead for news delivery online but CNN has posted an impressive performance, adding 31 million page impressions since November's news table. The increasing concern over world events and CNN's access to US-based sources and detailed coverage of potential war in Iraq is partly behind the increase. In addition to detailed news, sports, and business information, the site also offers links to sister sites including Time and Instyle.com.
