YouSpeak: Got News?
Where students go for headlines
In our weekly feature, “YouSpeak,” we ask students to answer a single question. There’s no doubt that the internet and social media are radically changing the way many Americans get their news. A study last spring revealed that newspaper circulation had dropped an average of 8.7 percent, part of an ongoing downward trend. At the same time, the popularity of mock news programs, such as Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report, has soared, particularly on college campuses.
So this week we ask: “How do you get your news?”
“YouSpeak” appears each Monday.
