Amy Mitchell talked about political polarization and its relationship with media-viewing habits. She discussed a recent study from the Pew Research Center that showed committed liberals and committed conservatives getting their news from different sources. While just 20 percent of the population, those people also seemed to drive political discussions, vote more, and have a larger influence because of their talk and activity. The report also found that television was a larger source for news than newspapers or online sources. About 47 percent of conservatives cited FOX News as their main news source of information. Liberals had more sources available and cited as their main source of news: CNN (15), NPR (13), MSNBC (12), and The New York Times (10). close
