Missing plane: Only a third of people think there’s too much coverage

Pew Research Center

Almost half of the people surveyed by Pew think there’s been the right amount of coverage of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Thirty-three percent said there was too much coverage and 12 percent — seriously? — said they haven’t heard enough.


It was by far the most-followed story among people Pew surveyed.


Fewer young people followed the story, for what that’s worth. And young people (those between 18-29) were also less likely to be interested in stories about government surveillance, Pew found. Only 14 percent said they were following surveillance stories closely, about the same percentage that was closely following news about Crimea.
