Internet Overtakes Newspapers As News Outlet

Pew Research Center

The internet, which emerged this year as a leading source for campaign news, has now surpassed all other media except television as an outlet for national and international news.
Currently, 40% say they get most of their news about national and international issues from the internet, up from just 24% in September 2007. For the first time in a Pew survey, more people say they rely mostly on the internet for news than cite newspapers (35%). Television continues to be cited most frequently as a main source for national and international news, at 70%.

    Shoud we really be surprised? Internet and TV are the only 24 hrs live audio-video media. Since news cannot be delivered in real time on print medium (newspapers are still delivered only once a day or at best twice) it is only obvious that it should loose out to the real time media.
