WEB WATCH: NEWS SITES

While there are few surprises at the top of the table, further down it is a rather more intriguing read. While the broadsheets are well represented, only Mega Star is there for the tabloids. If this was a top 20 rather than a top ten, we would see The Mirror and The Sun represented. Surprisingly, the Electronic Telegraph still appears to be dominating the broadsheet newspapers as The Times and The Guardian are almost level-pegging some way behind, coming fourth and fifth respectively.
