Question of  the day – Where Do You Get Your News?

At one time, not so long ago, I had a subscription to the local newspaper that I read faithfully every day. In fact, I couldn’t go to bed unless I had read that day’s edition.  I also supplemented reading the newspaper by watching the evening news.  Then I discovered the World Wide Web and learned that I could get all the news I wanted right online.

That stopped me from purchasing the local newspaper – in turn saving me money each month.  Between the news on TV and the websites available such as CNN  and ABC News – I just no longer needed to be spending that money on the paper.

Interestingly enough – take a look at this infographic, as I am not alone.

The Internet has opened up a whole new world for a lot of people.  Getting the latest news doesn’t mean having to wait 5 or 6 hours before the next news broadcast or the next edition of the newspaper to come out.  With a simple Google search of what you’re looking for – in just seconds – you can have the information at hand most of the time.

I find it interesting that it’s cheaper for companies in the long run to run a Press Release online.  It’s cheaper – it’s faster and us online folks – we benefit from that.  We can find information online from any place on the planet and faster at that.  What a concept!

I realize that for some folks old habits are hard to break.  Some people will always wait for the next edition of their newspaper to arrive.  Some – will wait to see if it’s on a television news station.  No matter what way one chooses – that’s a personal preference for each of us to decide.

How do you prefer to hear about the latest events?  I’d love to hear your take on your preferences!
