A new survey in the United States reinforces the primacy of traditional media as the source of news for Americans.
Television remains the principal information medium (49%), followed by the Internet (15%), radio (13%) and newspapers (10%). Those numbers aren't radically different than other surveys in the last two years.
Television is also the first choice of follow-up stories, ahead of the Internet and newspapers. Social media is a very small prime source of news, registering only about one per cent in the survey by the First Amendment Center.
