I don't think it's a question of age as much as a preference for one type of journalism over another. It is difficult for those of us who learned/practice/appreciate standard who-what-where-when reporting on local government, the courts, schools, and other vital community functions, to embrace brief, scattershot, often glib writing and story selection designed to entertain, rather than inform, and, ideally, to generate ad clicks. You can argue that it's just the way younger people consume news/content nowadays, but it's a diminished form of the art and a disservice to society.
