I don't know about that. Millennials by and large seem to be better informed, well, maybe not 'better', but more likely to know about things since they tend to be a lot more integrated with online communities. They are also more likely than older generations to have some (if light) knowledge of the technologies involved since they have gone more of their life exposed to them.
You've grown up too fond of the internet.
The "older generations" are perhaps too trusting of authority and media. They are perhaps too uncritical. They are perhaps too paranoid and prejudiced.
"Millennials" are perhaps too trusting of their friends, even those they don't really know much about. They are perhaps too easily manipulated with flattery and camaraderie. They are perhaps too subject to group think and naivete.
Neither, as a whole, is particularly well-informed.
