Table - Americans' Leading Sources Of News By Media

In terms of the specific news sources consumers gravitated toward, FOX led the news channels, cited by 8% of respondents, followed by CNN at 7%. Local TV news beat out all other national networks as a preferred TV news source, at 4%. These percentages are not a reflection of actual viewer numbers but what people cite as their leading source of news.

Overall, radio was 3 percentage points behind print, preferred by 6% in total. Read the rest at eMarketer.
