Study reveals huge disparity between news sites

The topics covered by mainstream news sites are “markedly different” from those on sites that allow users to determine what is newsworthy, according to a survey released Wednesday by the Project for Excellence in Journalism.The study, called “The Latest News Headlines — Your Vote Counts,” found that while mainstream media sites focused on the immigration debate and the Iraq war during the last week of June, three sites that let users determine the story lineup — Digg, Del.icio.us and Reddit — focused on the release of Apple’s iPhone and Nintendo surpassing Sony in net worth.
