According to a study by YouGov, 75% of people in the UK read, watch or listen to a news story every day.

(This may seem high, but in the UK we actually consume less news than people in the US and some European countries; nine out of 10 Germans access the news every day, and UK readers have less interest in politics, and more interest in celebrity news, with 21% of UK consumers expressing an interest in stories about music, film and gossip, compared with 9% in Denmark, 14% in Germany and France, and 16% in the USA.

I wonder if this says something about the average person in the UK, or more about UK politics.)
