Television is the primary source of news about the economy by more Americans than daily newspapers, the Internet and radio combined. Over half rate the coverage as good. That's per a nationwide
research report from the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism and conducted by the Behavior Research Center. Forty-eight percent of respondents said they rely primarily on
television for their economic news, while 21% cited newspapers, 16% the Internet, 8% radio and 7% "other." Of those who specified television, 56% said the coverage was good, and 6% said it was
excellent. Some 60% of those interviewed base financial decisions on media reports.
