Right-wing websites' traffic down

Plenty of blogs were citing the recent story on Fox News' ratings during this year, with viewership in the target demographic (25-54) down some twenty percent.

Now Raw Story has a report on the number of hits right-wing websites are getting, including Fox News, pundits like Limbaugh and Coulter, and mainstays like Matt Drudge.

Over the last three months, Limbaugh is down 18%, Coulter 10%, Fox News 13%, Drudge 21%, and Bill O'Reilly 40%. Several other right-wing "news"/op-ed metasites are off by 20% or more.

There's more, including the news that traffic to prominent progressive sites is up. Read the article and feel a little better this weekend.
