More Americans Get Their News From Local News Than From Any Other Source

A new study is out showing local news is the favorite by which Americans get their news information.  The study was conducted by the American Press Institute.  Here are the findings:

Among the different types of TV news, more Americans (82 percent) turn to their local TV news stations either through the TV broadcast or online than another other type. Sizeable majorities also cite the three national network broadcast news operations (73 percent) in their various forms and 24-hour cable news channels (62 percent) — such as Fox News, CNN, or MSNBC — as sources of news, either on television or digitally.

So open up the checkbooks again car dealers! You see that? 82% of the time people are watching us out of the roughly 375% of the news they get. That's 82%! I can't make this stuff up!

People just tune in to see Flo for the ten thousandth time. At least we're rid of the rubber chicken commercial.

I guess the 82% watching local news is just as believable as the 65% still reading newspapers. Maybe this survey was done in the 1960s. According to Mark Twain there are statistics, damned statistics, and lies. I have to believe that this falls into the last category.

The ONLY reason that news "shows" last 30 minutes is to sell commercials. Fact, Jack.

Look at the way the question was asked. It is very unverifiable.

I thought it was, "More Americans get their news from ABC than from any other source."
