The findings of a recently published digital news report from the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism may come as a surprise. Despite living in an age of smartphones and constant Internet access, a survey of more than 20,000 people from 12 different countries revealed that the vast majority of individuals still rely on television as their primary news source.
