What News Website Am I Looking At?

I noticed that CBSNews.com have redesigned their website. I have a lot to say about the redesign, but before I blog about that there was something else I wanted to talk about. The first thing I noticed about the design is how similar the latest news headlines section is to MSNBC.com (Redesign coming there soon?). I then took a journey to a few dozen websites to see how many people are using similar designs for their latest headlines section on their homepage. Enjoy the above montage of blue text! Blue is so corporate. So newsworthy. So trustworthy. So 1990 hyperlink color. So…blue. It was also interesting to note the similar camera icon on a handful of them.
