What’s In Your Media Diet?

 There are a growing number of ways that people consume news. To find out how people in Washington keep up with the news, once again we took to the streets. Here’s what they told us.

Dana, engineer at NASA

“I don’t really read newspapers, I use Google news,” he said, adding that he usually follows politics.

Joey Munoz, executive chef at Creative Food Concepts

“I usually read the Washington Post and the New York Times.” He said he mostly reads about food.

Portia Marie, manager at The Lost Society

“I typically watch the news. I’m not a big news person. I like Peter Jennings. I’ve had the hots for him for a long time.” (We didn’t have the heart to tell her that Jennings died of complications associated to lung cancer in 2005.)


“I read the Washington Post. Very inspiring.” He explained that he’s quite skeptical when he reads. “I use a third eye and a third ear. You’re not reading what you’re actually reading.”

Debbie Sliter, Retired

“I’m very old-fashioned, I read the Washington Post and the New York Times,” she said, stressing that she only reads them in print, not online. “No, that’s alright,” she said politely when we asked to take her picture. “No one wants to see that.”
