Of those surveyed, 92 percent said they get their news from more than one platform, 61 percent get at least some of their news online, 54 percent listen to radio news broadcasts, and 50 percent read a national or local print newspaper.

The survey also found that social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter have turned news into a social experience. Users are likely to post a news item that interests them and then comment on it. Online users also tended to review news items from more than one source rather than rely on a single news outlet.

Interestingly, the most common topics searched for were weather, followed by national news, sports news and celebrity and entertainment news, in that order (Doug Gross, "Survey: More Americans Get News From Internet Than Newspapers or Radio,", March 1, 2010).
