From where are Americans getting their economic news during this downturn?
A PEW INTERNET AND AMERICAN LIFE PROJECT study says that television and radio -- traditional broadcasting -- is the clear top choice for economic news, with 84% of all respondents and 85% of those in broadband homes saying that broadcasting is their first choice, followed among the general public by print media (64%) and the Internet (48%); among home broadband users, print and the Internet are tied for second at 67%.
For personal financial information, however, broadcast is second to print (45% to 44%) among the general population and third (at 43%, trailing the Internet's 52% and print's 46%) among people with broadband at home.
