Forbes map shows popular media outlets by state

Forbes magazine has partnered with URL shortening service Bitly to create an interactive map of what media outlets are most popular in certain states.

Bitly, which shortens millions of links a day for use via Twitter and other social media services, has analyzed its data to identify news sources and individual articles that were unusually popular in certain states compared to national averages, Forbes explains in a blog post.

“Bitly’s research reveals some obvious interest in local issues—a Forbes story about Wisconsin’s pensions was widely read in Wisconsin and an Onion article about President Obama was popular in Washington, D.C.—and it confirms some dearly-held stereotypes about media consumption: NPR is popular in Oregon and Minnesota; Fox News is popular in Mississippi,” reads the post.
