New Bit.ly Media Map
Bit.ly has updated its Media Map visualization. First off, Bit.ly is one of those URL shortener services and it uses clicks on the shortened links to power the map, but only for 10 seconds after the click. Second, the goal is to find media outlets that are disproportionately popular (or not) by state. The map uses d3.js and the TopoJSON extension of GeoJSON and shows data for 40 media outlets.
As I look at it, The Guardian is more popular that The New York Times in New York State.
