  1. It's much too wordy. I doubt if it accurately tells what the paper is about.

  2. LOL - what particular age?
    I am 74 and get a lot of my news on the internet, a little on the car radio, local news from local paper (but often the online edition), and TV only if it happens to be on at a restaurant where I am eating.
    I used to get most of my news from the newspaper and radio. (TV and internet did not exist)
    So I agree with your hypothesis.

  3. Sorry I wasn't trying to be offensive.. I asked my grandparents and they told me ways they consumed the news back in the day and how drastically different it is now.. That's why i said that

  5. You should probably say "people of the age of my grandparents" (probably similar to my age).

  6. maybe something like:
    The internet and TV have largely replaced newspapers and radio as news sources for my grandparents.
