In the modern media landscape, Americans have a wide range of resources to consume news. But how does the way we get our news compare to the rest of the world? The 2013 Reuters Institute Digital News Report revealed the most popular news platforms by country.
It turns out that the U.S., United Kingdom, Italy, Spain and Japan are similar in their preferences, The Atlantic concluded. In these countries, online news and TV are most popular. When respondents were asked what their main source of news was, each medium collected between 30 and 40 percent of answers.
However, results in France and Germany varied from the rest of the pack. In France, 57 percent of respondents reported that TV was their main platform for news. And in Germany, the more traditional news sources of print and radio still claimed 31 percent of responses when combined.
