    Presumably Mr. Flint know how much less TV they watch. And within which age they start watching less TV. And how they split their time among other options. Saying that research is nothing new based off of what the abstract says is poor judgment.

  2. It’s worth studying “obvious” subjects, because sometimes things that “everybody knows” are not as true as we think.

    That doesn’t seem to be the case here, but sneering at the effort is, at best, Monday-morning-quarterback laziness.

    Flint is a veteran of media and TV reporting – one of the few left at a major newspaper outlet. If he thinks the story is overblown, chances are it is

    This isn’t a story. It’s research. Is he a veteran of the scientific method? If not, then chances are he hasn’t a clue if it’s overblown.
