Whether it’s a retro-set or a high-tech big screen model,  most Americans prefer getting their news from TV, according to a recent Harris Poll. The survey was taken between August 13-20, 2012 and released last week. Around 2,300 adults took part. Sixty-eight percent expressed an interest in keeping up with news events. The figures from that poll showed 50 per cent of those questioned turn on the TV when they want to get the news, 36 percent go online, and a distance 10 percent rely on print.
