Degree of Sexiness: Part 2

Here are the scores from 1:15 a.m. EST this morning [if you want to know what this is about, see the previous post]. I've included cumulative scores also. CNN is the best so far with not resorting to sex to sell their site. Fox and ABC News have the most sex-related or sexy content. Fox does seem to be the more blatant with "above the fold" (top part of the web site home page and therefore most visible) sexy pictures and links to videos. At the time of this posting they are showing bikini clad women for a link to a video report of the Playboy super bowl party. From what checking I have done it appears that CNN and MSNBC are the most popular news web sites. Could it be that the others are including more titillating content to boost readership?

By the way I added points for advertisements as well. Sexy ads [e.g., lingerie ads] will count as three points.
