Most Read News Stories of 2004 by Media and Journalists from Send2Press Announced

Article Editor: Carly Zander

TORRANCE, Calif. - Dec. 23, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Neotrope/Send2Press, a PR agency and news distribution organization established Jan. 1983, has announced its most popular news stories of 2004 disseminated through the Send2Press Newswire ( The top-20 news stories, based on number of readings by journalists and media professionals is a fascinating cross section of the kind of news being announced by small businesses, and the type of news actually being read - and potentially reported on - by active news media professionals.

"Over the past 5 years, we have only provided this annual list to our clients," said Neotrope(R) founder and President, Christopher Simmons, a member of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), and ASCAP. "This year, we're announcing the list publicly since it is pretty interesting to see what our colleagues in the media actually read amidst the static of so much 'news spam' hitting the wires these days."

Results were tabulated based on number of "reads" by the media through the website in HTML, PDF, and plain-text formats; through readings on the PRNJ site, through clipping service click-throughs from sources like eWatch(tm), and CyberAlert(R), and through initial click-throughs via sources like News.Google, Lycos News, NewsNow(UK), and Send2Press Newswire media opt-in click-views. Search engine clicks ("hits") were not included as these are typically public, and not media, views.

The top-20 most read newswire stories for 2004, in descending order of popularity with the media (link to story included):
