Bin Laden Top for U.S. Pay-Per-View Execution?

Reuters, USA
Feb. 23, 2004 • Wednesday February 25, 2004

NEW YORK (Reuters) – One in five Americans would likely pay to watch a televised execution of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden if he were found guilty and sentenced to death but more than a third said executions should not be televised, a poll released on Monday said.

A national telephone poll of more than 1,000 people aged 18 or older, done for TRIO cable network by Harris Interactive, asked respondents who they would most likely pay to watch executed if executions were shown on pay-per-view television.

Bin Laden, accused of masterminding the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States, was named by 21 percent of those polled. Former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein was named by 11 percent.

Thirty-seven percent of those polled said they did not think executions should be televised.

The poll, conducted from Jan. 24 to Jan. 26, had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
