Pew Research Center released the results of its two-part study, which analyzed the news consumption habits of U.S. adults. The findings showed TV remains the dominate source of news information for U.S. adults, as 57 percent of respondents said they ‘often’ get TV-based news. In addition, 38 percent of respondents said they ‘often’ get news from online sources, including social media, websites and apps.
The study found mobile news consumption has increased, as 72 percent of U.S. adults said they ‘ever’ get news on mobile devices, up from 54 percent in 2013. Two-thirds (66 percent) of respondents said they get news from both mobile devices and desktops/laptops, and of those users, 56 percent said they preferred mobile.
