Discovery Hostage Issue : The way we get our news is changing

Today I heard about the Discovery situation around 2.30 when my wife called and asked me to check for alternates routes to College Park as traffic was backed up. Here is How I checked for news:



1) Twitter : Lot of tweets

2) Google News No results

3) Washington Post : full story

4) TBD.com



Of course my wife had WTOP on and so could hear the news on the beltway. The overwhelming majority of Americans (92%) use multiple platforms to get their daily news, according to a new survey conducted jointly by the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project and Project for Excellence in Journalism.



What do you use first to get your news ?
