A new poll conducted by Princeton Survey Research
Associates for ScreamingMedia shows Internet users are
developing more confidence and trust in the New Media.
This is bad news for the establishment press.
The nationwide poll of 1,232 adults found:
76 percent of Internet users said they could learn all
they needed to know from the Internet if they had to
go a month without reading newspapers or watching
TV. Only 44 percent feel this way about newspapers
and 31 percent about TV.
67 percent say the Internet has "the most interesting
information." TV was a distant second with 18
65 percent say the Internet is "the easiest way to get
information." TV was second with 24 percent.
57 percent say the Internet has "the most
up-to-date information." TV was second with 29
51 percent say the Internet has "the most accurate
information." TV was second with 21 percent.
Yet, despite these objective assessments by actual users of
all media, the establishment still likes to pretend that it
maintains a monopoly on truth.
