newstritional disorder?

Today's younger generation is under attack from an unlikely source: news it can't adequately process. According to an international study released Monday, people aged 18 to 34 are bombarded by news, facts and updates to the point where they now suffer from "newstritional disorder," according to anthropologist Robbie Blinkoff, who headed the study. Symptoms can include a diminished attention span, news fatigue, distraction, and even agitation, which can affect how people communicate in their personal and organizational relationships.

Thanks to Time Magazine for this piece. Its actually well worth a read (the piece not the 71 page study!) as it is probably prescient and might open eyes to challenges and opportunities coming along in the future.
