The Year the Internet Overtook Newspapers

Every day I get the Daily Stat from Harvard Business School, a quick stat or fact about something notable in the business/tech world. One of last weeks stats particularly picqued my interest…


In 2008, for the first time ever, more Americans relied on the Internet for national and international news than on newspapers. In December 2008, 40% of those surveyed said they get most of their news on the Internet, up from 24% in September 2007. 35% still mainly read newspapers, and 70% say television is their primary source of news.
