I checked out htpp://www.cnn.com shortly after the attack and I noticed
their servers were getting pegged pretty hard and not responding.  A couple
hours later they had reduced their site to a single intro page with one
article.  Now it's up to a couple of links, but it's still very lightweight.
Additionally, over the last hour I've noticed they offloaded the images onto
various servers to lighten the load on their main server.  This response was
pretty decent in my opinion.
