Gallup: Online News Hasn’t Beaten Old Media — Yet

Two notable trends:

“Only news on the Internet gaining, from 15% going there every day two years ago to 20% doing so today.”

“Contrary to many assessments, young people do not consult Internet news more often than other sources, Gallup found. For those 18 to 29, only 21% said they looked at Web news daily, not much different than the 19% of those 50 to 64 who do so.”

Suggests that the medium does not affect young people’s interest in news, something that has been in a long decline.
