Where Different Generations Get Political News According to Pew

According to Pew The Awl

According to Pew The Awl


Among Millennials, Facebook is far and away the most common source for news about government and politics. When asked whether they got political and government news from each of 42 sources in the previous week (36 specific news outlets, local TV generally and 5 social networking sites), about six-in-ten Web-using Millennials (61%) reported getting political news on Facebook. That is 17 points higher than the next most consumed source for Millennials (CNN at 44%).

PBS and NPR are not even bleeps in the Millennial column!

Yes and that is really sad. And no one gets their news from Twitter.
