Freakonomics Blog: "older people are “more likely to choose to read negative articles about those younger than themselves. They also tended to show less interest in articles about older people, whether negative or positive.” The researchers think older people may get a self-esteem boost from the negative coverage. “Living in a youth centered culture, they may appreciate a boost in self-esteem,” said Dr. Silvia Knobloch-Westerwick"
