Celebrity news sites, like the stars they cover, do not draw equal attention. Some serve millions of visitors while others are still working for their "first million".

WeSmirch, the real-time celeb news tracker, has its own favorites, those sites it relies on most for headlines. And the WeSmirch Leaderboard, introduced today, lists the top 100 such sources. Every 20 minutes it ranks them by how much they appear on WeSmirch. A similar list for Techmeme went live last week.

Since WeSmirch favors original news reports, well-funded news operations tend to lead the list. Yet filling out much of the Leaderboard are the smaller indie blogs adding a dose of opinion and snark to the day's news.

The list aims to provide a varied tour of the web sites currently dominating the celeb beat. I hope you enjoy it.
