NYT web traffic bigger than … Daily Kos (barely) and Gizmodo (3x)

N.Z. Bear, keeper of the TTLB Blogosphere Ecosystem, notes that even the traffic numbers the NYT boasts about make it only slightly bigger than Daily Kos. … But, hey, it’s 4 or 5 times bigger than a lone law professor blogging in his spare time from Tennessee! … P.S.: Don’t worry, Pinch. Eric Alterman says Wall Street doesn’t care about these quotidian Web stats. Not one tiny bit!

I don’t know about you, but “NYTimes.com: we’re slightly more popular than that Kos guy!” doesn’t strike me as a huge boast for a $3.3B media company. Maybe stick with “The New York Times: eight times more popular than those chicks that can’t stand Kirstin Dunst’s outfits.”
