A recent Pew Research Center study confirmed something that most of you probably already knew — the 30 and under crowd doesn’t get news and information the same way that they used to. For one thing, young people are the largest viewership for The Colbert Report and The Daily Show, two show that treat news topics as satire — meaning they use humor to criticize the people and events making headlines.
What’s more, 71% of 18-29 year olds say that the internet is their main source of news. A third of people under 30 find out what’s going on in the world from social networks like Twitter or Facebook. But can satirical TV shows and your Facebook friends be trusted to give an unbiased view? And if so, where do you find out what’s up in the word?
