ABSTRACT
The article discusses how young adults acquire information. According to research by S. E. Bennettt and E. W. Rademacher, these young adults are out of touch with civic life, citing declining numbers who read newspapers and traditional forms of mass media. It claims, however, that this finding is inaccurate because this age group acquires their information from other sources, such as the Internet and social media cites. It also says that civic information is gained through video blogs and others, usually provided by those from their own age group.
