20 percent of American adults said that they often get their news from social media, while only 16 percent said the same about print newspapers, according to the Pew Research Center. It's the first time that timelines have trumped newsprint since Pew began asking the question.
Television (49 percent) is still most adults go-to news source, followed by news websites (33 percent) and radio (26 percent). But TV is officially on throne watch. Social media is the #1 way those ages 18 to 29 choose to stay informed.
