Andrew Kohut of the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press will present the results of his new national survey of where Americans get their news and what they think of it.

Kohut, who has been conducting the survey every two years since 1990, will analyze trends in the public’s news habits, which have changed dramatically over the years. Among the factors he explores in the latest survey are: how the country’s sharp political divisions affect news usage; how the Iraq war influences public interest in international news; where young people are getting their news; and how the public rates the credibility of major news outlets.

After Kohut presents his findings, he will join a panel of experts on the media to discuss the results and take questions from the audience.
