It would be interesting to include figures for war babies in this too. Take it back 4 or 5 years to just before Pearl Harbor.


If 76% of boomers chose newspaper as their main news source, how can the percentages for the other mediums be so high? The total is over 100%. Or am I just reading it wrong?


I think it asked if people were using that medium as a news source, but asking for each medium individually.


Then it should just say News Sources or something along those lines. Main should be removed. That implies the one used the most and would mean the numbers should equal 100%.


You’re confusing intelligence with education. A degree is hardly a sign of intelligence. Especially in watered down education systems.
