When it comes to consuming current events, more Latinos are plugging into English-language news, the Huffington Post reports. This comes from a new Pew Hispanic Center study released this week, which found that “a growing share of Latino adults are consuming news in English from television, print, radio and internet outlets, and a declining share are doing so in Spanish.”

The study, conducted by Mark Hugo Lopez and Ana Gonzalez-Barrera, who found that in 2012, 82 percent of Latino adults said they got at least some of their news in English – this number is up from 76 percent who said the same thing back in 2006.

On the other side of the spectrum, the amount of Latinos who get some of their news in Spanish has declined to 68 percent in 2012 from 78 percent in 2006.
