Radio placed second to TV as American's most trusted source for news, according to a new LEXISNEXIS study. Radio was trusted by 42% of respondents, trailing TV but ahead of local papers, cable news and business networks, and print and broadcast media Internet sites.
Blogs, USENET groups, and chat rooms trailed far behind, with just 6%. The study also showed that while 52% of consumers expect to continue to trust and use traditional news sources, 35% expect that new media will take over as the leading trusted news source in the future.
