The percentage of Americans who say they get most of their national and international news from the Web has increased 17 points since 2007, and the gap between TV viewers and mouse clickers is even more narrow for people ages 18-49. Women in this age bracket prefer TV news to the Internet 62 to 52, while men 18-49 actually prefer surfing the Web for updates over TV news, 56 to 55 percent. Here's how American news preferences have changed over the past decade.
