Study finds decline in interest in news

by | Oct 30, 2023

There has been a decreasing appetite for closely following events of the day, according to a a Pew Research study, reports Broadcasting+Cable.

Pew said the decline was across the board for demographic groups by education, gender, race, ethnicity and political party affiliation, though some declines were bigger than others.

According to Broadcasting+Cable, the just-released results from a 2022 survey of more than 12,000-plus adults, “only 38% said they follow the news all or most of the time, down from 51% in 2016.

“The numbers were even worse for younger demos. Among adults 30-49, only 27% said they watched all or most of the time, down a whopping 19% from 46% who said so in 2016.

“In the 18-29 demo, the number was 19%, down from 27%.”

The Broadcasting+Cable post also stated that, in 2016, “57% of Republicans or Republican-leading independents said they followed the news al or most of the time. In the most recent survey, that percentage had fallen to 37%. For Democrats, the drop was only from 49% to 42%.”
