I mainly receive my news from the news channel CNN off of the television. I rarely tune into any other channels for the news because CNN just happens to be a part of my daily life. If there are specific events that I am aware of and want to learn more about, I will join in along with most of the population and glue myself to a computer monitor to scroll through large amounts of news articles.
I don’t have a specific site that I’m keen on, I just tend to go on the internet and search for what I am looking for and it pops up. Most of the time Yahoo tends to pop up with a link that goes directly to their homepage for that article. I just mainly look for something specific, not necessarily the source it comes from.
My major is Psychology, so I lean more towards articles that have to do with internal and external situations where psychology plays into the picture. While watching the news on CNN, I pretty much listen to everything there is about the news because it tends to interest me about everything, even if it isn’t necessarily news in general. What I genuinely like about CNN is the variety of news portrayed on the air.
I pay attention to the news just about 2 to 3 times a week I would say. I don’t watch it everything morning because I have classes and obviously I’m a college student who likes her sleep, which I will argue that most of us college students do. I like to see how the situations have affected people and what could happen because of that situation in general to wherever it happened to.
This is how I receive my news according to a UT student. Older people would be stunned by the fact that we as college students even pay attention to the outside world and what is going on around us or other places.
