InfoStory Quotes: Passion for news

“‘If the news is that important, it will find me” — college student, quoted in L. Gordon Crovitz, “Now the News Finds You,” Wall Street Journal, September 20, 2010

“…instead of replacing traditional news platforms, Americans are increasingly integrating new technologies into their news consumption habits. More than a third (36%) of Americans say they got news from both digital and traditional sources yesterday, just shy of the number who relied solely on traditional sources (39%). Only 9% of Americans got news through the internet and mobile technology without also using traditional sources. The net impact of digital platforms supplementing traditional sources is that Americans are spending more time with the news than was the case a decade ago.” –The Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, September 12, 2010

“In Poland, a newspaper subscription tends to satisfy purely intellectual needs and is regarded as somewhat of a luxury which the majority of the people can heroically forego; in the United States a newspaper is regarded as a basic need of every person, indispensable as bread itself.” –Henryk Sienkiewicz, Portrait of America, 1876.
