The Huffington Post has registered 26 million unique monthly visitors in the United States, a record for the site, according the comScore November data for the "Newspaper Sites." (See below.)
The comScore numbers find the Huffington Post holding in the the number two "newspaper" position, after the New York Times. It has passed the Tribune newspaper group, which is now ranked third.
