What Are the Largest Internet Publishing Networks?

List of the Largest Content Publishing Networks
In an effort to compile a list of the largest internet content publishing networks I would appreciate your help improving this list of 30+ internet publishing companies I have started below. I realize that this list could get exhaustive but in light of Demand Media's IPO it probably makes sense to crowdsource a list of the largest publishing networks and their monthly traffic numbers according to Quantcast top sites.  There is likely going to be some consolidation in the space so companies like Demand Media can start building their own ad network to diversify from Google and Yahoo Ad Sense advertising.  They will also need to scale their traffic in order for Wall Street to believe in the high growth story.  Here is my list of the top generic 10 publishing networks and their respective monthly traffic numbers according to Quantcast.  Its not always easy to distinguish the difference between an Ad Networks vs a Publishing Network but for this purposes we would like to build a list of companies who has a team of writers on staff.
