Morning Links: November 21, 2008

— Nate Silver has some interesting numbers comparing traffic on political web sites at the height of campaign season to today. According to his (somewhat ham-fisted) numbers, The New York Times has kept its traffic at almost exactly the same level post-election as in the three months before Nov. 4. Drudge and Huffington Post are actually up since the election. Meanwhile, political sites like Talking Points Memo, Daily Kos, and Red State have seen dropoffs, but not as dramatic as I might have imagined.

— Peter Krasilovsky writes on the growth of Yelp, the restaurant-review site that is bigger than you think — and is eating away at another newspaper franchise.

— Boston-area readers should tune in at 7 tonight to WGBH for Beat the Press, which will have a story on crowdfunding journalism — perhaps including a quote or two from me.
