But those debates are not what I want to go into today - no, I just want to present how people are getting their news at this moment in time, which is pretty easy to do with so many infographics being made these days. This topic is always interesting to this old journalism major from year to year, especially considering that I remember seeing a while back that plenty of people did still prefer newspapers for local news.
It seems, though, that this may no longer be the case; according to an infographic put together by Techjournal.com, more and more people are heading to the Internet, using their local paper's websites or (presumably) Patch.com or the equivalent to keep up to date on current events.
In short, for better or worse, online news is becoming the dominant source of information, especially thanks to the increasing number of mobile smartphones being used by the public.
