Harvard University has released a study showing that 60 percent of U.S. teenagers pay little attention to daily news, according to Reuters report.
The research was conducted from January through March, with over 1,800 people interviewed. Researchers at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government found that nearly 30 percent of U.S. teenagers said they pay “almost no attention” to daily news. Another 32 percent said that they pay “casual attention” to one news source only everyday.
Among people between ages 18 and 30, 48 percent said they are “inattentive” to daily news, while only 23 percent of the older age group said so.
