From Pew Research comes the unsurprising, err, news, that the internet is preferred over newspapers as a US source of national and international news.
It’s amazing to me how high TV is on that question – especially after the appalling US network and cable news reporting over the last 10 years. I’ve essentially switched TV news off for over 10 years. Ok – over 20 years.
Indeed right now, for under 30’s, 59% say they get most of their news online, and only 59% say they use TV as a news source at all.
Look at the internet jump from 2007 to 2008 – amazing, but look at the TV slide. I wonder how much of that was due to the US election, and the appalling network coverage versus the internet, radio and newspapers.
