Pew Center for the Study of Internet and American Life reports that “For many home broadband users, the internet is a primary news source.” :

By the end of 2005, 50 million Americans got news online on a typical day, a sizable increase since 2002. Much of that growth has been fueled by the rise in home broadband connections over the last four years. For a group of “high-powered” online users — early adopters of home broadband who are the heaviest internet users — the internet is their primary news source on the average day.

At the same time, the US is threatening to create a tiered Internet with positive support from FCC Chief Kevin Martin (reports /. and Networking Pipeline).

People are learning from the internet instead of watching Fox! This must be stopped (or at least further regulated and tamed)!
