In days past, there were four main ways one received news: directly from a friend, from print newspapers or magazines, from the television, or from radio. These days, according to a recent report from the Pew Research Center for People and the Press, almost half of Americans receive digital news in one form or another. According to another Pew survey, when it comes to local news, it seems that we are relying on a mix of both traditional and online sources.
