No surprises here! A recent poll has shown that 70% of Americans no longer look on traditional media as their main source of new. They are now relying on the internet and trailblazing blogs like this (Street Knowledge Media) for info. The research done by We Media/Zogby Interactive poll has unearthed these statistics:
Nearly half of the 1,979 people who responded to the survey said their primary source of news and information is the Internet, up from 40 percent just a year ago. Less than one third use television to get their news, while 11 percent turn to radio and 10 percent to newspapers.
More than half of those who grew up with the Internet, those 18 to 29, get most of their news and information online, compared to 35 percent of people 65 and older. Older adults are the only group that favors a primary news source other than the Internet, with 38 percent selecting television.
