In his latest Business Week column, Jon Fine notes that MSNBC.com and CNN.com frequently clobber FOXNews.com in the cable news channel Web site war. This leads Fine to say: “Could this signify that Fox News’ style is less translatable to the unbridled Web than that of its straighter competitors?” Here are some interesting excerpts:
> “They just got way out ahead. Now we’re climbing the ladder,” says Bert Solivan, general manager of FoxNews.com.
> “The Web may be all about splintering media models, but, especially for MSNBC.com, its portals still matter. Nielsen//Net Rating finds MSN.com responsible for a large chunk of MSNBC.com’s traffic. In contrast, AOL drives only a fraction as much to CNN.com. Fox News has no such portal relationship. (Wonder why Rupert Murdoch has made noises about creating a next-generation portal?)”
> At “current rates of growth, FoxNews.com has years to go before it will unseat either rival.”
