News consumption is decreasing in younger generations due to two specific reasons. One is the feeling of a lack of credibility in news organization due to bias coverage. Two is a feeling that stories in their current mediums lack significance in daily application. When you add these two reasons together you will find that the decrease in news consumption, specifically in the youth, is due to a loss of confidence in the news.
The youth, and the population as a whole, are being narrowed by the current model for news. The current model runs off of a single sourced format which raises the question of its credibility. The youth is being raised within an era infused with a density of researchable avenues, aka the internet. The current youth is used to having at the tips of their fingers, multiple perspectives, multiple theories, and multiple researching techniques. The youth is turning from current models of news because they want their own self-influenced and fact checked medium. One with a spread of all different beliefs, ideas, and sources.
If one had the ability to give themselves the confidence that the news they were obtaining was the most reliable news they could consume, then the consumption of news in the youth would rise. It is the confidence in truth that the youth want instilled and this confidence may be obtained through an innovative application process that gathers all news, from all possible corners, and places it in the consumer’s hands and ears.
