Official: in Jordan no news media can ever refer to stories or news of the King which is not authorized by the royal court

This is an actual story which will never make it into the Western press. The Jordanian potentate issued a decree that only his royal court can discuss the King and any news media which does not carry the wishes of the court will be punished.  In other news, Jon Stewart invited Jordanian king to discuss the democratic aspiration of the Arab youth.
