The conservative website, mustreadalaska.com is the second most visited news site in Alaska, according to Alexa traffic rankings. It’s an impressive feat considering publisher Suzanne Downing is for the most part flying solo when it comes to producing content.
MRAK outranks both KTUU and KTVA, two websites with dozens of employees gathering content. The only site with a higher ranking than MRAK is adn.com.
MRAK is one of the few websites in Alaska producing content that doesn’t have a decidedly left-leaning bent. Downing is a talented journalist and an obvious hard worker. But the reason we like her is because of how ferociously left-leaning bloggers hate her. She’s obviously doing something right.
Fox News dominating cable news ratings prove there’s an appetite for content other than the left-leaning drivel often spewed out by most “mainstream” news organizations. MRAK also shows there’s a hunger for the other side of the story, especially when content is well produced.
