Real-time Media Map

The real-time Media Map by Bit.ly shows the preferred media outlets in each state. Click on a state at the interactive page, and get the top ten for that state. In this screenshot, you can see what online media is preferred  in each state; you can also look at the most popular newspapers, TV/radio news outlets, and magazines rank in each state. Or you can watch the real-time information on users, with dots popping up when someone accesses the news.

The data is based on the Bit.ly stream, which is not necessarily representative of the real world, but it's pretty neat to look at. -via Digg

I'm disappointed that California belongs to TechCrunch; considering moving to Oregon where they love The Onion. Now THAT's news. Still, one "media property" oddly excluded (and it IS a media property, owned by Conde Nast for 5 years) is Reddit.

Of course, we all wish we could see Neatorama (or MetaFilter or BoingBoing) grabbing at least one state somewhere... maybe if you started focusing on Rhode Island local news...

And one other oddity: TMZ, which is so Hollywood its name is an acronym for "Thirty-Mile Zone", the area in LA where all the studios are, is tops in TEXAS, ARIZONA, GEORGIA and NEW JERSEY? Serious Hollywood Envy, dudes.
