Watch news on TV: California Civic Engagement

image0081

In general, persons from the San Jose metro are less likely to get their news from TV than either the San Francisco metro or California as a whole.

Question: I am going to read some ways that people get news and information.  Please tell me how often you did each of the following during a TYPICAL MONTH in the past year:
Watch the news on television or get news from television internet sites – basically every day, a few times a week, a few times a month, once a month, or not at all?

California is the entire state of California. The sample consisted of 5,438 interviews with a sample of error at the median of approximately 1 percent.
San Francisco includes San Francisco and Alameda counties. The sample consisted of 549 interviews with a sample of error at the median of approximately 4 percent.
San Jose includes Santa Clara County. The sample consisted of 268 interviews with a sample of error at the median of approximately 6 percent.
