The Daily Beast made Time magazine’s list of the 50 Best Websites of 2010 at No. 18. “As a news site,” Time’s staff writes of The Daily Beast—calling it a "must-read for any serious news consumer" and citing the quality of its writers—“it’s something of a triple threat: a trendsetter, an insightful and analytical clearinghouse of events and ideas, and thanks to the thorough and easy-to-scan Cheat Sheet, quite the time saver.” Other news sites on Time’s list include the Guardian (No. 16), National Geographic (No. 19), and WikiLeaks (No. 20).
