A recent Pew study, reported by the New York Post, revealed a shift in the way we consume news. TV news consumption still outpaces YouTube News consumption. However, a younger demographic is more likely to check out citizen journalism on YouTube of major events and natural disasters rather than seeking out traditional TV news.

The New York Post article goes on to state that, "the study shows YouTube as a global news arena where professional and amateur video bleed together, and is made consumable in on-demand style."

NYPOST.COM reports:
A new study has found that YouTube has become a major platform for news, one where viewers are turning for eyewitness videos in times of major events and natural disasters.

    Youtube vlogs are my fav way of getting news just cause it can be short and easy to understand but also you can get many different opinions instead of maybe a news channel that might have an agenda.

    I spend my afternoons watching the news stations for information about the world. I'll look online for scientific news or if I want to learn more about a subject the news stations were covering.

    Most people who clicked "online" think they're above the mainstream media. There's just as much bias in those blogs and Yahoo articles you read, don't get it twisted.

    She is a horse, not that it matters. She never gives facts.

    And you do know she works for faux news right?

    It's so much fast online. If you go to places like yahoo news, you have no commercials and more details. On youtube you sometimes have entertainment along with being informed.
