Douglas A. McIntyre of 24/7 Wall St. has rated the financial sections of the top 25 online newspaper sites. The commentary on what the individual sites do well is worth reading. The top site, he says, is nytimes.com.
NYT.com makes impressive use of blogs, charting, video, and other interactive features. Perhaps the best content run in the section on a regular basis are the “DealBook” area which covers the financial sector and “Bits” which covers technology. Ideally, the NYT business section would not have to run such a large amount of copy which overlaps with other sources, but being complete trumps that. Grade: A
