Wait. According to a post on Forbes, the most influencial media outlet for Minnesotans is: The Onion? Yikes, that probably doesn’t ring so well down on Portland Avenue.
In the northeastern states, it’s NY Times. In Illinois, the Chicago Tribune. In California, the Los Angeles Times. And in Minnesota and Wisconsin, the most influencial media is The Onion. Before the StarTribune feels too bad though, it may take solace in the fact that a whopping 14 states choose USA Today, or as I like to call it, McNews for Bored Airport People.
