Huffington Post is the number one newspaper website in the U.S. - Can it do the same in Canada?

by Knowlton Thomas

May marked the first month that newspaper behemoth The New York Times was surpassed by another newspaper in website traffic in the U.S.

Ironically enough, this newspaper does not deliver news on paper.

Indeed, it is purely online "newspaper" The Huffington Post that has claimed the number one spot.

NYT traffic plunged 12 percent following its decision to introduce a paywall in March, while Huffington saw its traffic grow by 50 percent over the past year.

With the Post having just launched on Canadian soil, how long will it be before Arianna Huffington's company claims the throne in the North too?
