What readers say about Current, 2010

Here’s a piece of unfinished business: reporting back the results of Current’s reader survey taken at the start of the year, with thanks to those of you who responded. We delayed mostly because of the shortage of space in recent issues and not because the results were ugly. Indeed, 72 percent of respondents rated Current “quite useful” or “extremely useful” in their work. In my work, Current and current.org are this useful:
Extremely useful: 31 percent
Quite: 41
Somewhat: 24
Not very: 4
Not at all: 1
Readers also rated Current high in fairness, accuracy, readability and other qualities, as you’ll see in the chart below. It was especially gratifying to see that 93 percent of respondents rated us “good” or “excellent” in fairness.
