Are Alexa stats worth the bandwidth?

Web traffic at the Times, Guardian, Telegraph and Sun are all down in the past year according to Alexa data shown in Visual Editors. Following comments, a caveat has been added to the report saying that Alexa rankings are a sampling of a small number of internet users.

The charts show similar declines among major US newspapers. I am wondering whether Alexa stats are worth the bandwidth to download them.

I gave up on them recently when their figures showed that Wordblog had its best traffic rank in the Philippines. I don’t think so.
