WASHINGTON (AP) -- Like your cell phone? You're not alone. One in four adults under age 50 in America likes the technology well enough to read news events from the Internet on it.
And, some 43 percent of those surveyed in the new Pew Research Center poll say they're mobile news consumers, compared with only 15 percent of older respondents.
Within that group, guess what gets the most hits? Weather – at 72 percent -- followed by current events at 68 percent.
But, more than half get their news from both online and offline sources. And, 46 percent say they use four to six different types of media on a typical day.
