The Pew Research centre for the People & the Press just released a comprehensive study about Americans’ news consumption.
The findings aren’t very surprising. In a nutshell: More people are getting their news digitally, which is making up for declines in the traditional news audience. Nevertheless, over the past few years, there hasn’t been a huge decline in people getting their news from traditional sources. Rather, digital platforms are supplementing traditional media, which means Americans are spending more time with the news because there are more ways to get the news. Which seems like a good thing, right?
You can check out the full study over at Pew.
Fewer people are reading newspapers or listening to news radio. But more people are getting their news online.
About a third of the American public access the internet or email on their smartphones. But far fewer people are getting news on their phones.
