These are the examples of Saudi "liberals" who serve as propagandists for Saudi princes: the case of Tariq Humayyid

Tariq Humayyid is a long-time propaganda servant for the sons of Prince Salman.  His services got him the position of editor-in-chief of the vulgar and sensational Saudi daily, Ash-Sharq Al-Awsat.  In his latest column, he calls on the Saudi government to engage of cleansing (or cleaning) of Saudi universities to expel professors whose views he found to be problematic.  He focuses on one professor of communications in Saudi Arabia.  The reason for his anger is that the professor in question deconstructs on Twitter the articles of Mr. Humayyid and takes it upon himself to deconstruct Zionist discourse in Arab media.
