What are some news/magazine sites powered by Word Press?
Is NYTimes.com one of them? It looks like it incorporated Word Press.
I don't run a blog but I have a website that I am looking to manage through WP.
I very much doubt NYTimes.com is using Wordpress as its CMS.
You certainly can use Wordpress for news/magazine sites (I'm in fact currently developing one myself here), but the NYTimes most likely have developed their own custom solution in-house.
