Personally, I prefer to read the news. Admittedly, that often means scrolling through the newspaper on my phone first thing in the morning, but it is reading nonetheless.  I do subscribe to the Arizona Republic, getting it delivered on Wednesdays and Sundays. Nothing quite like taking the time on a Sunday morning to read the paper cover to cover.

But according to a recent Pew Study, I’m in the minority.  The study found that Americans prefer to watch the news rather than read it by a ratio of 47 to 34 percent.

The study also notes that among those newspaper readers, those in the older age group (50 and older) have increased their preference for the internet since 2016 when this study was last conducted.

I am firm believer that we will always have a newspaper. It is the record of a community.  It may come in different formats, but reading news, at least in my view, is here to stay, despite what this survey may say.

Your thoughts?
