To maintain a free society we need well informed and thoughtful citizens possessed of much virtue. TV couch potatoes are not good citizens. Most Americans are TV couch potatoes. Even 47% of college grads report TV as their main source of news.
PRINCETON, NJ -- Television is the main place Americans say they turn to for news about current events (55%), leading the Internet, at 21%. Nine percent say newspapers or other print publications are their main news source, followed by radio, at 6%.
Why do those with postgraduate education report more use of print news than internet news?
Old folks shift heavily toward TV news. I suspect their concentration has deteriorated to the point where they find reading too taxing.
