Survey: Daily Republic is SD’s top paper
By Northern Plains News Service
The Daily Republic was rated the top newspaper organization in South Dakota by an informal, unscientific online poll conducted last week by the Northern Plains News Service.
One hundred respondents were asked to note which daily newspapers were and were not “accurate, fair, timely and dependable.”
Forty-one percent of respondents described The Daily Republic positively, which was the most of any newspaper organization in the state.
Next was The Associated Press — not a newspaper, but a news service that has newspaper members — at 36 percent and the Sioux Falls Argus Leader at 34 percent.
The publications with the best net of fair to unfair responses were The Daily Republic at +27 percentage points, followed by The Associated Press at 19 points and the Yankton Press & Dakotan at 15 points.
Northern Plains News Service is an independent news-gathering organization that supplies content to The Daily Republic and other clients.
