Watch news on TV: Washington Civic Engagement

image0082

Persons from the Seattle-Tacoma Metro area are more likely to get their news from TV every day than the rest of Washington is.

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?

Washington is the entire state of Washington. The sample consisted of 1,238 interviews with a sample of error at the median of approximately 3 percent.
Seattle includes the standard Seattle-Tacoma Metro Area. The sample consisted of 608 interviews with a sample of error at the median of approximately 4 percent.
