Memeorandum Leaderboard Shows Mainstream Media Leading In Political Coverage

memeorandum1.jpgGabe Rivera’s latest leaderboard product Memeorandum Leaderboard is now live with some interesting results for the political blogosphere.

According to the list, based on story headlines on Memeorandum the New York Times, Washington Post and AP control over 22.4% of political headlines. The Atlantic Online, The National Review and CNN (twice) also make the top ten, leaving slim pickings for political blogs.

Arieanna Huffington’s The Huffington Post, a site believed by TechCrunch’s Erick Schonfeld to be heading towards an IPO, hits the list in 12th place.

The (perhaps sad) state of the political blogosphere stands in contrast to the tech blogosphere, which dominates the equivalent Techmeme Leaderboard list, holding approx 64% of all spots.
