One story reported completely differently….

March 1, 2010

I read two stories on the news habits of the US public and both sources reported it completely differently… am I missing something here? Please tell me my expert friends… who is right?

Survey: More Americans get news from Internet than newspapers or radio

    Hard to say who is ‘right’..I think it’s more about different writing styles. the CNN is more conventional in its reporting..while Nieman Lab has written a boring story (comprising statistics) in a much more interesting manner with those five pointers..personally, I would choose to read the latter since I’m not a fan of numbers 🙂
