My spin:Of course it’s an increasing source. Smallbiztechnology.com’s news section is proof!
WASHINGTON, Jan. 11 (AP) – People are turning increasingly to alternatives like the Internet for news about the presidential campaign, shifting away from traditional outlets like the nightly network news and newspapers, a poll found.
Young adults were leading the shift, with one-fifth saying that they consider the Internet a top source of campaign news, according to the poll by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press. About the same ratio of young adults said they regularly followed the campaign with comedy shows like “The Daily Show” and “Saturday Night Live.”
News-only cable networks are second only to local television news when people are asked to name where they regularly learn something about the campaign. More than 4 in 10, 42 percent, said they regularly learned something from local television news, while 38 percent pointed to the cable news networks, a slight increase from four years ago.
