From a newspaper? Television? The radio? From a digital source, like social media or a news site? Perhaps all of the above.
In 2012, 39% of respondents got news online or from a mobile device “yesterday,” (the day before they participated in the survey) up from 34% in 2010.
Though “traditional” media may be declining as a primary source for news, online news has been on an incline since 2006. A further breakdown shows that 19% of respondents got news from social media and 16% did so from e-mail, while 8% said they’d listened to a podcast.
