It might as well have been the headline.

The headline read:

Poll: Majority of voters name TV as primary news source

A new Hill-HarrisX poll found that TV is still the most widely used news platform among Americans, despite the rise of the internet and social media.

The Hill-HarrisX survey of 1,001 adults, conducted Nov.30-Dec. 1, has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.

Sixty-nine percent of those between the ages of 50 and 64 said they preferred to get their news by watching TV, compared to 34 percent of those between the ages of 18 and 34 who said the same.

Less than a quarter — 21 percent — said they prefer to get their news from the Internet.
