The USA Today web site is an aggregate source for global and national news. Like the paper edition, it is broken down into easy-to-read sections.

The writing is simple and concise. The front page offers a variety of media. It is extremely effortless to get a full view of the day in a matter of minutes.

Directly below the far left masthead is a picture of the top story of the day. Clicking on the picture takes viewers to an in depth story.

Alongside the central story, other top stories of the day are listed in down style text. Underneath top stories, an automatic banner runs highlighting the stories in video, slideshow, and summary snapshots.
