Poll on how do you consume news in the Middle East

As recently as five years ago, information was still a scarce commodity. It was so scarce that people were willing to pay for it. They patiently waited for weeks or months for their favorite journal or magazine to hit the newsstand. People were dependent on conventional mediums like television, radio and print to get firsthand information.

But today information is running on steroids and is available in surplus. Thanks to the web, we don’t need to wait for lastest information as it is available a few clicks away. With the rapidly evolving Arab spring and various other events happening in the Middle East, people have started looking for alternative sources of information.

Can we trust alternative sources of information? Is the print media dying? Is social media becoming the authoritative source of first-hand information?

We would like to know how you consume information.
