an update on iraq- from john in park hill

The Wall Street Journal, 346 words Aug 29, 2005

Perhaps more impressive is that Alhurra's credibility has also grown steadily. According to ACNielsen, 77% of Alhurra viewers rate its news coverage as reliable, up from 60% last year. "Considering all the people who said no one would listen to us and no one would care," Mr. [Norman Pattiz] told us, "I think these numbers certainly prove these people incorrect." The fact that stands out to Mr. Pattiz is that "about 40% of viewers of al-Arabiya and al Jazeera watch Alhurra." Those viewers would seem to be open to an alternative perspective on Mideast events.
