Aside from who made the list and who did not, one of the most interesting things about Don Sico’s list of The 10 Best Political Journalists in New Jersey is the type of media that compromise the Top 10.
Three of the slots are filled by television reporters, two are radio journalists and one operates a newsletter that is distributed over the internet. That means only four of the Top 10 work for newspapers — and three of them are columnists. The fourth covers New Jersey-related stories in Washington, D.C.
Newspapers have long been especially important in New Jersey because of way in which most of the television and radio available in the state emanates from New York and Philadelphia. But times have changed. People get their news and information from a variety of sources today – a reality reflected in this list.
