Re: For these folks, is TV the cat's meow?

So 20% of the population think the Internet is irrelevant and half of them also think the same of print media (10% of the general population)?
They're CDs, TVs and Books/Newspaper and that's worked for them.
I haven't owned a TV in 20 years or subscribed to a paper in 10.
If I read a newspaper's online content, I'm going to want the relevant details they've omitted.
The more complete picture is usually a different story than the one published by the paper.
With just newsprint and TV, there isn't any way to fill in the blanks.
Viewers/readers are limited to the news that Editors decide they should have - which are usually the same stories as every other Editor.
