Media consumption of news sites has gone through the roof reflecting increased interest in Iraq War II. The BBC has seen the number of page impressions double since the middle of February and its number-one position seems unassailable. However, CNN comes in at second place, with its hits having doubled because of the war. The Guardian, with its mixture of sport, business, entertainment news and jobs, has seen 13 million new monthly page impressions.
