The survey, which was fielded April 9-14 by phone of 1,208 adults over the age of 18, discovered that 36% of all respondents were using cable news networks and their web outlets, to find healthcare reform information.

News from the networks was cited by 16%, followed by newspapers with 12%, friends and family with 10% and, finally, radio with 9%.

  1. Two stories today showing the continuing reduction of power and influence by Networks. News and Sports. The NFL Draft hit the Networks hard.
    The Networks reduced their news bureaus and time dedicated to news. Cable took over and the audience has moved.
    The Networks never even saw the draft’s value, but they have also given up two of their big events – Bowl games and NCAA tournament. They need to pay attention or they will be no better than cable networks themselves soon.

  2. Of course, what a great site and informative posts, I will add backlink – bookmark this site? Regards, Reader.
