Teens Rely Heavily On TV For News, Rather Than The Internet

from the people-still-watch-TV-news? dept

In a study that may surprise quite a few people, it turns out that teenagers still get most of their news from TV rather than from the internet. This remains the case, even though plenty of studies have shown that TV is having a harder time attracting viewers away from their computers. The other interesting aspect of the study is that, for all their rebelliousness and independence, the kids often get many of their views and opinions on the news from their parents — though, the kids are upset that no adults like to listen to their views.
