A new poll reveals that more Americans would choose the Internet as their only news source than TV, radio and newspapers combined, and Internet reports are considered much more reliable that other mediums.
The survey, which contacted more than 3,000 people and has a margin of error of 1.8 percent, revealed 38 percent believe news from the Internet is the most reliable, followed by television at less than half that figure – 17 percent. Newspapers were in third at 16 percent and 13 percent chose radio."

As much as i agree with you muzzleflash, you gotta remember most of the people are still visiting FOX, CNN and BBC news sites more than any other. They might as well buy the newspapers or watch the TV.
A good majority of people though i think now search for the news from different sources but i don't think their "Booming voices" are quite loud enough. Often i feel a lot of very good reporters are preaching to the converted sadly.

A Zogby analysis of these and other similar polling questions showed that the Zogby online methodology had negligible impact on the findings of the survey
