The pollster asked 1,523 people nationwide and found Preah Vihear topped the list of the five most-interesting news items as rated by 82.07% of respondents.
The other four stories are the two-trillion-baht loan for the megaproject developments (78.39%), negotiations to solve the southern unrest (74.48%), amendment of the constitution (71.95%) and the amnesty bill (70.57%).
For 61.82% of respondents, the main reason for Preah Vihear being of interest was that they are afraid of Thailand being at a disadvantage and losing the land to Cambodia.
The interest in southern news concerns sympathy for the people and officers in the South, according to 55.10% of respondents.
A total of 56.74% of respondents wanted information about the amnesty because it had been a long-pending issue and the outcome was significant.
