something to be aware of:

Seventy percent of television viewers in Saudi Arabia regard the al-Arabiya all-news channel as "very trustworthy," while fewer than 1.5 percent regard it as not trustworthy. They had a similar opinion about al-Jazeera, another Arab all-news station, with 69 percent saying they regard the station as trustworthy and fewer than 3 percent saying it is not trustworthy. However, the American-funded al-Hurra network received mostly negative comments from those polled, with just 17 percent saying that they regard the channel as very trustworthy and a whopping 20 percent calling it not trustworthy. The findings were reported today (Friday) in Saudi Arabia's English-language Arab News.

does 20% really justify the adjective "whopping?"

what did the other 63% say? i'm surprised the number isn't higher.
