A poll conducted for the January 2003 issue of Teen Chick magazine has found that 68 percent of American teen-age girls think that al Qaida mastermind Osama bin Laden is cuter than Iraqi strongman Saddam Hussein. The poll findings likely will impact content and programming in most media. "To appeal to the all-important American teen-age girl demographic," media researcher Sam Homsik stated, "news outlets on the Internet, television and in the traditional print sector will need to do more segments on the War Against Terrorism that feature numerous images of Osama bin Laden, because the girls think he is cuter than Saddam Hussein; likewise, we should expect to see fewer pieces on Iraq and its unsightly leader." White House Press Under-Secretary Flea Raicher hailed the results of the poll: "The president has said all along that Saddam is not as cute as Osama, and that is why we need to attack Iraq."
