NEW YORK (AP) _ A new survey says fewer Americans are reading newspapers and are instead getting their news online. But television remains the leading source of news in the country.

The Pew Research Center's biannual survey on news consumption habits says not surprisingly, younger people tend to get more of their news on the Internet, while older folks use traditional media such as TV and newspapers.

Pew said the results show an increasing shift toward online news consumption, but that there is now a sizable group of a more engaged, sophisticated and well-off people that use both traditional and online sources to get their news.
