Getting news online does not correlate to people necessarily watching less television. Some online news consumers are heavy users of TV, and some are light.

Online news users are those who get news online at least one minute per week. Light use is under 60 minutes a week, medium is 60 to 199, and heavy is 120 minutes or more.
