According to extreme traffic this site gets about as much traffic as the Boston Globe. If that's true, the Boston Globe is doing something wrong:

At the same time, the information these dinosaurs churn out is being consumed as never before. Because when people turn to the Internet for news – not airline tickets or blogging or porn, but news – they, not surprisingly, frequently turn to mainstream media Web sites. While MSNBC and CNN have much larger online audiences, newspapers do quite well., for example, had 10,361,000 unique visitors in October, trailing only (with 11,405,000) among newspaper Web sites. And it isn't just the big national papers: The San Francisco Chronicle's site attracted nearly 4 million unique visitors, the Boston Globe's 3,602,000 and the Houston Chronicle's 2,654,000.

Though, I'm sure their ad rates are much higher.
