Men and women differ in the kind of news they follow, and what news sources they use, as this report from Pew Research confirms.

Men constitute roughly 60% or more of the audience for Washington news (59% men), International (63%), Business/financial (65%), Science/technology (69%), and Sports (74%). And men disproportionately lean to radio and online as their news source.

Women constitute roughly 60% or more of the audience for Community news (58%), Entertainment news (61%), Health (63%), and Religion (64%). And women disproportionately head for the network TV morning shows for their news.
