The Pew Research Center for People and the Press released a biennial study that suggests Americans are spending more time than ever consuming news. The average daily dose is about 70 minutes, up from 67 minutes. One-third are doing so through digital formats.
The digital consumers are larger in number than the newspaper consumers --- in itself an interesting development --- and on par with radio. Television news continues to be the most prominent format, reporting no real decline in recent years despite the arrival of digital delivery.
While the amount of consumption is increasing, the number of people consuming isn't. And the survey suggests newspaper declines are only partly offset by digital gains.
