Another news consumption report

[Keyword: ]. Thanks to Einar Thorsen at UWE for sending me this one: it’s a Pew Internet report on news consumption (PDF) that concludes, unsurprisingly, that “for broadband internet users, online news is a more regular part of the daily news diet than is the local paper; it is nearly as much of a daily habit as is getting news from national TV newscasts and radio. For home dial-up users, however, online news is not as much an everyday activity.”

Other headlines include the fact that mainstream news sites are most popular (only 9% of all internet users have visited a news blog, although this rises to 12% for broadband users), and “Online news consumers are willing to register for news, but are not willing to pay”
