Saturation of online news consumption

Rather than ask where you get your news, how about asking where do you get your news online? By now, studies have shown that while some newspapers are still going strong, more people are consuming news online, so the better question is to ask where online? Social networking sites? Google searches? local news websites?

Everyone has there own means of getting the news that matters most to them at the comfort of their fingertips. By now, the market is saturated with ways and locations to retrieve a bundle of news whether it’s local, national, global, topical, etc.

From a March 15 article from Mashable Business:

In surveys conducted by the Pew Project for Excellence in Journalism, 34% of respondents said they read news online within the past 24 hours (as opposed to 31% who favored newspapers); and a full 41% said they get most of their news online, 10% more than those who said they got most of their news from a newspaper.
