Social Media "Largely Accurate" News Source For 39%

Pew Research Center dove into social media as a source for news. Over half of U.S. adults say they get news from social media “often” or “sometimes”. Facebook (36%) stands out as a regular source of news for about a third of Americans. YouTube comes next (23%) and Twitter(15%). Of these news consumers 39% percent thinks what they read is "largely accurate". Even it is 39% of half of all Americans, this sounds like a large piece of the population, not just a small group of conspiracy believers. I guess people think this stuff on social is more real, uncensored stuff, whilst traditional media are biased.
