Saudi regime wants to close a TV station

The Arabsat is an Arab League satellite project for the broadcast of Arab TV stations.  But Saudi Arabia has the largest share (but less than 40%) so it uses its muscles to censor and repress and ban.  This week it requested that the Lebanese government closes down Al-Mayadin because a guest on the TV station aired criticisms of Saudi regime, and it threatened to relocate Arabsat broadcast station from Lebanon to Amman.  Kid you not.  (Not in the US press, natürlich).
