Survey Results 6c: News
Reasons why news websites are preferred to other media are that there is always access to them, that one can go directly to the article in which they are interested in, and that they make it possible to see an issue from the points of view of many different countries. Besides Barbara, the importance for this is also expressed by Abira, Nikolaj, Dan, Manuel and Giovanni. The high proficiency in languages is of course an important prerequisite for this to occur.
The most popular medium for news is, however, still TV. Natalie explains that it is the easiest just to sit back and relax in the evening and let the news come to her rather than have to look for it actively.
The rest of the respondents read or watch world or international news, while just six are interested in local or national news. Five are interested in reading about culture (music, books, events), equally five are interested in politics, nine are interested in science and technology, two are interested in finance.
While some admit to watching the news on the two main Danish channels (DR1 and TV2), many will regularly visit CNN or BBC for news updates on current events.
