Pew: Cable is Top Source of Campaign News [Multichannel News]
According to a Pew Research study, 36% of people regularly tune in to cable news as their source for campaign news. While it's a slight drop from 38% during the 2008 elections, local broadcast TV news has dropped drastically from 40% in 2008 to 32% now.
Pew found that network TV news was the top source for 26% of Americans, with the Internet at closely behind at 25%. Newspapers continue to decline as a source for campaign news. Today, only 20% of Americans cite newspapers as the top source for campaign news.
I wonder if Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert count in this.
