The results of the latest poll on Jordan Planet reveal that the majority of Jordanians (assuming the respondents are mostly Jordanians) heard about the Aqaba terrorist attack through "Foreign TV and radio stations."
Those that heard the news via "State-run Jordanian TV and radio" constituted only 9% of those polled. Now, isn’t this sad? Isn’t national TV supposed to be the first source for major local events? I personally heard about the attack through Jordan Planet after reading Isam’s blog early in the morning. Maybe Ibrahim is right and the reason that people are so tuned off by Jordan TV is the bad graphics.
Still on the issue of online polls, I finally updated the poll on Mental Mayhem. The question is as follows:
- Is Jordan doing enough to protect citizens from terrorism?
