Online news consumers outnumber newspaper readers

The demise of the newspaper:

For first time, you online news consumers outnumber those newspaper readers: the impact on politics | Top of the Ticket | Los Angeles Times: "For the first time in history, a larger percentage of Americans (46%) get their news online than get their news on that paper stuff that leaves their fingers ink-smudged (40%).

Only local television news (50%) still surpasses online as a source of news for Americans. And its lead is shrinking.

The little-noticed development has many major implications for American politics, how they operate and how they are consumed."
