Pew study: many people unhappy with news outlets

(KFVS) -

A new study from the Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism shows many people are unhappy with news that some outlets deliver.

The study found that nearly one-third of news consumers said they gave up on a news outlet because that outlet didn't give them what they wanted.

Many participants in the study said some news sources are offering fewer and less complete stories.

The study also found that local news is focusing more on weather, sports and traffic.

In cable news, it was found more outlets are focusing on talk and much less on news coverage.
