U.S. Census: Internet more popular than newspapers

For the first time in history, time spent on the Internet has surpassed time spent reading newspapers. The stat is just one of many collected in the U.S. Census’ Statistical Abstract of the United States, 2007, the standard summary of statistics on the social, political, and economic organization of the country. Both USA Today and Yahoo! report on the media statistics, which suggest that Americans spend more time watching TV, listening to the radio, surfing the Internet and reading newspapers than anything else except breathing.
