The problem seems to be site limiting, rather than network limiting. i.e.,
news sites are being overloaded, which is causing slow or no response to
http queries due to either server overload (my guess) or news site transit
link overload (also possible). This is what seems to be causing lacking of
response to news sites, instead of generalized network or peering
congestion.

I can concur. Network running fine (busy, but not full). Servers *very* 
busy. I am amazed how few network outages in NYC I am hearing about.
