MSNBC said its Web site was the most-visited news site for the week ending Oct. 15, a stark contrast to MSNBC’s perennial third-place position on-air behind Fox News Channel and CNN.

MSNBC.com reported that it finished the week of Oct. 15 with 13.4 million unique visitors, according to Nielsen//NetRatings. That’s more than CBSnews.com, ABCnews.com, CNN.com and Foxnews.com, MSNBC said.

MSNBC said page views topped 250 million and that the site streamed nearly 17 million videos that week.
