TV news is still king

I find this to be really surprising: "TV Is Americans' Main Source of News", mostly because I get almost none of my news from TV. While I realize I am an outlier when it comes to TV watching in general, I really was under the impression that internet sources had displaced the cable news channels.

Also, TV news sources, at least the ones you can get in the U.S., are mostly pretty terrible. CNN-International is much better than the dumbed down domestic CNN, which just goes to show how little the powers that be think of the American audience. So maybe part of my surprise was wishful thinking.
