The yearly survey from the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press reports that for the first time, more people rely on the Internet (40%) as their primary news source than newspapers (35%).

Currently, 40% say they get most of their news about national and
international issues from the internet, up from just 24% in September
2007. For the first time in a Pew survey, more people say they rely
mostly on the internet for news than cite newspapers (35%). Television
continues to be cited most frequently as a main source for national and
international news, at 70%.
