    Last week, Comedy Central and TRU Insights released the results of a survey they recently conducted on the political habits of MIllennials. One of the questions asked Millennials what sources they got their election news from. The results were as follows:

    • 68% Network News
    • 58% Online Aggregator (Yahoo!, Google)
    • 56% Cable News
    • 52% Facebook or Twitter
    • 50% Political Satire Shows (The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, Weekend Update)
    • 50% News Website
    • 44% Newspaper
    • 37% Late Night Talk (The Tonight Show, Late Night)

    Do these results surprise you?

    Online news outlets such as NPR, CNN, and to diversify sometimes FOX. I want to be able to read and process the information myself.
