News ‘fatigue’ hits Americans, mostly Republicans


Nearly 70 percent of Americans suffer “news fatigue,” with Republicans feeling it even more, according to a new survey.

The Pew Research Center poll found that the portion experiencing information overload is similar to how Americans felt during the 2016 presidential election, when a majority said they were exhausted by the campaign coverage.

Conducted from Feb. 22 to March 4, the survey of 5,035 adults found that while majorities of both Republicans and Democrats express news fatigue, about 77 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents feel worn out over how much news there is.

That’s compared to about 61 percent of Democrats
