According to various polls, the majority of Americans receive their news from the television, while young people tend to receive their news elsewhere. Given that many college-aged Americans do not own a television set, using streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu, which are void of any “traditional” news broadcasts, this investigation delves into where these people get their news. Examining what media we use and how people use media, as opposed to what media does to people, through the Uses and Gratifications Theory of mass communication I intend on clarifying how individuals using non-traditional sources for their news, are subject to agenda setting from multiple sources.
