In the latest addition to the nationwide newspapers-versus-new-media debate, New York magazine published an unconventional report Sunday that analyzes how different media outlets report, and misreport, the news of the day. One of their case studies: coverage of the Annie Le murder.

From New York magazine:

“We took a random Monday— September 21, 2009—and gathered all the news that was reported that day from 84 news sources across the spectrum, including sixteen major papers; thirteen magazines; many prominent network, cable, and radio news shows; and eighteen news-focused websites. Then we chose seven stories and set out to determine who was responsible for the individual pieces of original reporting that advanced each one.”
