Strange Maps has a great chart about where the news breaks, and it’s no surprise that the highest concentration is inside the Beltway and the Big Apple.

Where the News Breaks

TNR’s Josh Patashnik observes, “It’s certainly not all that big a surprise that New York and DC dominate coverage, but the scale of their domination is pretty impressive–more stories are datelined in DC than in the entire state of California. And look how puny states like Texas, Illinois, and Ohio appear compared to smaller eastern states like Massachusetts and Connecticut.”

Glenn Reynolds seems underwhelmed, scoffing, “This map suggests that it has a lot to do with where reporters are already hanging out.”
