I made note of some of the research he cited that brought him to all his ‘conclusions’. I found that I have access to many of the same sources, which I also reference in my blogs and accompanying research; , and . I think Mr. Bauerline conveniently left out some important facts, and if he didn’t do it “conveniently”, then I would challenge him to study his arguments more thoroughly so he’s at least got some ground to stand on. Throwing around the name “PEW Research” just for some instant credibility is not only distasteful, it’s annoying for those of us that link the name with research in a way that doesn’t contradict the context it was found in.
Also, I wonder if he realizes that most of the characteristics he’s complaining about are actually consistent throughout many teenagers in every generation.
The more I read into his accusations and comments, the more I realized, “this guy just wants some publicity”. And what better way to get attention than to stir up a fuss. Too bad he skewed his research – he might have been able to come up with a respectable opinion.]]>
