Media Insight 2020: How Americans Are Consuming News and Who Do We Trust?

Amid all of the hype about news and disinformation that has been circling in this most unusual year, we thought we’d ask ordinary Americans what their news consumptions habits really are. In our December survey, we got insights from more than 600 people across the country about how important the news is to them, and what and whom they trust for news. Check out this infographic for highlights of our key findings – national vs. local news, how age group news consumption varies, are more or fewer news sources consulted, and how many really use and trust Facebook as a top go-to news source.
