The internet is rapidly becoming the most popular source of news in the US, overtaking radio and closing the gap on TV.
Some 61% of US adults source news online, compared to 54% who listen to radio news, and 50% who read a local newspaper.
The survey by Pew Internet found that TV still holds a healthy lead, with 78% stating they source news from local stations, and 73% from a national network.
Mobile browsing is also growing in popularity, with 33% of handset owners accessing news on their phones.
Nine in 10 American adults routinely get news from multiple platforms, with half using four to six per day. In contrast, just 2% said they source news from the Web only.
