Pew Research Survey: Americans' News Consumption

Pew Research Survey: Americans' News Consumption

Nearly one in three Americans gets news from the Internet on a daily basis, up from one in fifty a decade ago. But according to the 2006 biennial news consumption survey (127 pages, PDF) conducted by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, online news is most valued for headlines and convenience and is considered supplemental to radio, television, and print as a news source. The report also finds that the growth of online news audiences has slowed since 2000, especially among the young.
