Research Newspaper Reading
In 1996, people on average spent slightly more than an hour (66 minutes) getting the news from TV, radio or newspapers.
Today, nearly one-in-three regularly get news online.
The biennial news consumption survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, conducted among 3,204 adults from April 27 to May 22, finds that the audience for online news is fairly broad, but not particularly deep.
People who say they logged on for news yesterday spent 32 minutes, on average, getting the news online.
In addition, 3% say they read something on a local or national newspaper website yesterday.
As a result, even the highest estimate of daily newspaper readership 43% for both print and online readers is still well below the number reading a print newspaper on a typical day 10 years ago (50%).
