So, it’s 2011 and the question on the table is where do Americans turn to get their political news?
Here’s the answer, courtesy the Pew folks as reported by B&C.
The answer, in order of popularity, is No. 1, TV; No. 2, newspapers; and No. 3, the internet.
The story says that 67% of Americans get their campaign news from TV, down slightly from 69% in 2006. Meanwhile, about one-quarter (24%) of Americans got their 2010 election news from the Internet, representing a three-fold increase since 2002, it notes.
Local news programming was the most popular source of TV news, at 33%, while Fox News Channel was the next biggest source at 26%, the story says.
Newspapers are still more popular than Internet news sources, with 27% of U.S. adults noting they get their news from the print publications.
