Elections in Jordan

Now it is noticeable that US and Western media are not covering the silly elections in Jordan.  As far as selections go, this is not worth covering at all: it is as insignificant as the elections in Syria.  But what is worth covering is the extent to which the regime plays with the elections rules and the conditions in which the candidates compete. That is worth covering but it is becoming rarer and rarer to find US media covering corruption and abuse in regimes that are aligned with US/Israel.  Increasingly especially in the Middle East and also in other regions, US media have become a propaganda voice for US government.
