Number One is the Houston Chronicle, Number Two the Washington Post.
The Best Blogging Newspapers in the U.S. among the 100 largest by circulation.
From my interview with Ann McDaniel, VP of the Washington Post Corporation:
ALICE MARSHALL: How have blogs affected the news gathering process and editorial practice?
ANN L. MCDANIEL: Definitely. They are one more source of information for the public and readers. Since the sourcing on blogs is questionable at times, though, it is very important to evaluate and confirm it before reporting it.
ALICE MARSHALL: The Washington Post has begun to offer a few staff blogs. Will there be others? Can we look forward to staff blogs at your other media properties?
ANN L. MCDANIEL: : Yes.
ALICE MARSHALL: Are you considering offering a registration-free RSS feed like The New York Times? Or offer a registration-free link generator for bloggers?
ANN L. MCDANIEL: : That’s up to the leadership at the newspaper and Washington Post-Newsweek Interactive.
ALICE MARSHALL: Does it surprise you which stories are picked up by bloggers? Or is it much as you would have predicted?
ANN L. MCDANIEL: : It seems to me there are blogs about virtually everything!
ALICE MARSHALL: Many bloggers have been harshly critical of both The Washington Post and Newsweek. Has the blogging phenomenon given you new respect for politicians and other newsmakers?
ANN L. MCDANIEL: : We’ve always respected politicians and newsmakers and we understand that being written about isn’t always fun. Like others, we hope commentary about us will be accurate and fair.
ALICE MARSHALL: Finally, what benefits do you see arising from the creative tension between bloggers and mainstream media?
ANN L. MCDANIEL: : The more information in the public arena, the better, as long as there are smart editors and reporters to confirm and assess it for readers.
