Despite the scrutiny over media coverage of the Newtown shooting, a new study from the Pew Research Center shows nearly six in ten of those polled said they follow news about the shooting very closely.
The number of those following the coverage very closely (57%) is higher than other recent mass shootings.
While in a separate study conducted between December 14-17, 53 percent of those polled said they were trying to restrict how much coverage their children watched compared to 47 percent who weren’t.
