Al-Arabiyyah TV

Al-Arabiyyah's coverage has become inconsistent: as the correspondents of the news station of King Fahd's brother-in-law suffer attacks and harassment from government goons, the reality on the ground speaks against the strong ally of House of Saud.  But the editorial and general studio-based coverage is still solidly pro-Mubarak.  When the gas pipe line was bombed yesterday, the station was at pains to insist that this targeted pipe line carries gas to Jordan, not Israel.  But they still could not explain why the gas to Israel has been halted.  Explain it, you tools of the Saudi royal family.
