A new Northwestern University study released Wednesday indicates minority young people spend more than half of their day consuming media content, a rate 4.5 hours greater than their white counterparts.

Television remains the most popular way content is consumed among all young people, but among minority young people who spend 13 hours per day consuming media of various types, electronic gadgets -- such as cell phones and iPods -- increasingly are the way such content gets delivered.
