STATE—A Monmouth University poll suggests that New Jersey newspaper readers are more familiar with state politics and local information that those who rely on TV, radio or the Internet.
Garden State residents get information from a variety of sources, according to Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute, including New York and Philadelphia based television and radio stations.
Overall, 80% of New Jerseyans report reading a state-based newspaper in the past month, 64% read a newspaper nearly every week.
Three out of five New Jersey residents give local newspapers a positive rating of excellent or good for the job they do covering Garden State news, while out-of-state media earn negative ratings.
