Number of Sources According to Newspaper Format

1 2 3 4+
Youth Tabloids 24% 32% 23% 10% 10%
The Examiner 24% 25% 21% 11% 18%
Broadsheets 7% 9% 9% 11% 64%
Total 19% 23% 18% 11% 28%

Old fashioned broadsheet newspapers tend to have deeper sourcing than their new tabloid rivals, in part because they have longer stories. This, however, is something the new challengers may think is discouraging readers.
