A study released Monday by Gallup found that television is the leading source of news for most Americans and that, among specific sources of televised news, Fox News tops all competitors.
According to Gallup, 55 percent of U.S. adults identified television as their main source of news, compared with 21 percent who said the Internet, nine percent who said print and six percent who said the radio.
More than half of the respondents who cited television made general references to the medium, including a little more than a quarter who said they simply watch "television" or "TV news."
Eight percent identified Fox News as their top source, while seven percent gave the nod to CNN — making the two cable news channels the leading television sources cited by name in Gallup's survey. No other channel — including MSNBC, CBS, NBC, CNBC, ABC, the BBC and PBS — eclipsed one percent in the survey.
