Newspaper Websites Explode In Popularity
Apparently, young people do want to read the news -- just not in print.

Still, at least it's good news people are supplementing their "Daily Show" fix with some actual news stories. And of course the unspoken reason for all this online buzz is blogging: thousands and thousands of wildly popular websites like Americablog that send people to news stories at major outlets again and again and again.
