In an emergency, broadcast television is still the place a majority of Americans turn to first for breaking information, a new survey has found.
The survey, conducted by the Pew Internet & American Life Project with Federal Computer Week, focused on where people would turn for community information in a terrorist attack.
Fifty-four percent said they’d turn to TV first and 22 percent more said they’d choose it as a second source in the event of a terrorist attack or other emergency. The closest rival medium was radio, which 15 percent anticipated would be their primary source of information. Twenty-five percent said they would turn to the radio as their secondary source.
