Summary ObservationsSources of News and Information Television is looked upon as the most regular source of news and information followed by newspapers and radio. Fewer Washington residents compared to the national sample rely on television, although it is still the number one source, and about equal proportions of both samples rely on newspaper. With radio, however, more of those polled in the national study say they regularly listen to radio as a source of news and information compared to those in Washington.
Radio talk shows are the least likely to be listened to on a regular basis by either the national sample or those surveyed in Washington.
Internet Usage for Current Events, Public Issues, Politics With regard to Internet usage, about 34% of those in the national study and 36% in Washington regularly or sometimes will go online for information about current events, public issues or politics.
In addition, about 40% of Washington residents versus 33% of the national survey say they get information about the courts from others sources. These sources most often include people they know who have had other court experiences, legal professionals they know or people who have been jurors. Interestingly Washington residents are almost twice as likely to cite they know someone who has had a court experience and rely on them as a source of information compared to the national sample and are four times as likely to say they know a juror who has shared their experiences as a source of information.
