Interesting layout: HLN’s home page

A screenshot of HLN's home page

I don’t think I’ve ever visited HLN’s site, but I clicked over to it today for whatever reason, and I found it really interesting.

The home page is basically a top-10 list of what I guess are what they’ve determined to be the top stories. What I don’t know is what they’re the top 10 of (day, week…?). It also doesn’t help that the story at the top of the page, which is “breaking now,” broke almost 24 hours ago as of this writing (Saturday evening).

Nevertheless, the layout is interesting, and it’s kind of a bold move, too. It’s not hard to guess which stories each news site considers important, but this is the only one I’ve seen that’s willing to assign a number to them.
