I Heard The News Today. Oh Boy.

(From TV Week -- From Josef Adalian)

A PEW STUDY released late last year showed that, for Americans under 30, the Internet has all but overtaken TV as their primary source of news.

TV types no doubt greeted the report with alarm.

I wouldn't be surprised if more than a few networks secretly commissioned studies to find out why the kids are abandoning TV news.

I'll save them some money -- viewers are turning to the Internet for news because it's become almost impossible to find actual news on TV.

The three cable channels often described as "all-news?" Try maybe 10% news, 90% news "product."

I Heard The News Today. Oh Boy.
