by Gervais, Michael Jude, Ed.D., University of Louisiana at Lafayette, 2017, 266; 10618188
Abstract (Summary)

There are currently five sources on news and information in the United States. The Internet is slowly taking over as the number one source of news and information for students who are currently attending college. With the popularity of social media, the Millennial generation college student is turning away from the traditional news media. One of the primary challenges for educational leaders in journalism courses is to understand what types of news today’s generation finds favorable, why are they so attracted to the non-traditional news sources, and what changes can be implemented into the classrooms.
