A Decline In News Funding Affects How Consumers Get News [POLL]

After years of cutbacks, a new study says consumers abandoned a news outlet because of these cuts.  It’s not just because stations have less money, it’s because these outlets have not offered what audiences want.

The Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism says nearly one-third of consumers have abandoned a news outlet because it no longer gives them what they want.

Those polled say there are fewer or less complete stories.  Respondents say too much local news is focused on weather, sports, and traffic, and cable news spends too much time on talk.

Do you feel the same about our local stations?
