Poynter has the results of a Pew poll that shows men and the more highly educated are the most active news junkies out there.  The study also showed that young people–despite their almost total aversion to print publications–take in digital news at a similar rate as older people.  Most of those polled said that they prefer a “print-like reading experience” on digital devices.  Obviously, this bodes well for advertisers seeking to reach the 18-29 demographic through the web.
