Examines three alternative explanations that attribute children's superior recall of television news to (1) underutilization of the print medium; (2) a recall advantage of listening compared with reading; and (3) imperfect reading ability. Finds that the television presentation was remembered better than any of the other versions, consistent with the dual-coding hypothesis. (SC)
