Younger Generations consume lots of Media

While it makes sense that a generation of people who are so skilled at consuming media, would want a variety of way to do so we often forget just how many ways we can actually access our media sources.  While in fact younger people do read a lot of their media online they also, read a lot of magazines, newspapers, and even books.  Younger generations are remarkably skilled at consuming media in huge amounts from almost any source, but are less skilled at making sure that their sources are presenting them with accurate information.

Most recently we witness in the 2016 presidential election a slew of miss information online being shared all over social media sites.  Studies show that most people do actually trust print sources for their news more because they believe it to be more reputable .  This is a big deal in a time when sources are not checked for most of what if published online.
