NEW YORK (AP) — A survey of people ages 16 to 40 finds that millennials and Generation Z follow the news but aren’t that happy with what they’re seeing.

The study conducted by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and the American Press Institute says 79% of people in that age group follow news daily, contrary to perceptions that many are tuned out. But only 32% say they enjoy following the news, down sharply from 53% in a similar study seven years ago.

The study also shows many young people blame news organizations for spreading misinformation and suggests they have had it with “food-fight journalism” that depicts debates between people with extreme views.
