**加拿大两名囚犯乘直升机越狱后被抓获**

加拿大当局说,魁北克省的两名监狱犯人公然在白天越狱,从一根绳子爬上一架在监狱上空盘旋的直升机,这两名越狱者已被抓获。

警方星期一清晨说,拘留了与越狱有关的四个人。

加拿大环球邮报报道说,伪装成游客的两名男子星期天下午劫持了翠湖度假山庄一家旅游公司的一架直升机。

直升机起飞后,这两名男子用手枪胁迫驾驶员飞往位于蒙特利尔西北60公里的圣耶鲁梅,两名越狱者在那里爬进了直升机。

有关当局说,一名越狱者和两名同犯于星期天晚间被抓获,另一名越狱者被围困在一座建筑里,随后于星期一凌晨投降。

** Canadian Prisoners Break Out in Helicopter Escape**

Canadian authorities say two Quebec prison inmates who made a daring broad daylight escape, climbing a rope into a hovering helicopter, have been recaptured.

Police said early Monday they have detained four people in connection with the escape.

Canada's The Globe and Mail newspaper reports the helicopter was hijacked Sunday afternoon from a tour company in Mont-Tremblant by two men posing as tourists.

Once the helicopter was aloft, the men held a gun on the pilot, ordering him to fly to St. Jerome, 60 kilometers northwest of Montreal where the inmates climbed aboard the aircraft.

Authorities say one inmate and two accomplices were captured late Sunday, and the other inmate surrendered early Monday after he was surrounded in a building where he had barricaded himself.

**研究报告:媒体隍7d支紧缩改变美国人获取信息方式**

一项新研究结果显示,美国各地媒体的编辑部由于预算紧缩,不得不解雇记者,削减报道开支,致使越来越多的观众和读者转而上网获取每天的信息。

没有党派色彩的皮尤研究中心星期一发表了有关美国新闻业界状况的年度报告。报告说,由于传统媒体不像过去那样提供信息,将近三分之一的受访者不再依靠这类信息来源。

这份报告指出削减开支的明显后果,包括做深入报道的记者人数减少,电视新闻的时间缩短。报告说,美国有线电视新闻网等有线电视频道现在播放更多的采访报道,每天的现场报道减少,而以往这类报道所占的地位重要得多。

此外,年轻人开始远离电视新闻,在30岁以下的人群中,电视新闻观众从2006年的42%减少到去年的28%。

** Study: Media Budget Woes Changing How Americans Get News**
A new study says budget woes that have forced newsrooms across the United States to lay off reporters and spend less on their coverage are sending viewers and readers to emerging online forms of learning about the day's news.

The non-partisan Pew Research Center issued its yearly report on the U.S. news industry Monday, saying nearly a third of people it surveyed stopped going to a particular news source because it no longer offered the information it once did.

The report cites the tangible effects of the cutbacks, with fewer reporters to look deeply into stories, and television news programs showing fewer stories that are shorter in length. It says cable channels, such as CNN, are airing more interviews and less of the day-to-day live news that once played a much larger role in their coverage.

On the local level, young people are fleeing television news broadcasts, with viewership among those under age 30 dropping from 42 percent in 2006 to 28 percent last year.
