There's little or no credible evidence that the current generation on
twentysomethings is basically any different than past generations. The only
recorded difference is the state of technology and technology's influence as
it affects age groups at the time.
So, historically, I think that it is provable that my generation of 20-29
year olds, back in the 1970's, was little different than todays'. We
listened to news and information shows less in our 20's, but did not
completely tune out the spoken word. We mostly hated commercials! And when
Nixon and Agnew came on the TV, we'd usually turn them off and turn on the
music. But we watched 60 minutes, the evening TV news sometimes, and
listened to radio news.
If the current 20's were tuning out the spoken word then Facebook and You
Tube would have a smaller base.
