The long article in the Times about Muhammad Bin Salman

Notice as usual in all articles in the Times and the Post about Saudi royals: no critics of the regime are ever interviewed and that only apologists and advocates are interviewed and cited.  It is enough that the article concludes by this: "“I am persuaded as someone who focuses on this topic that the ruling family of Saudi Arabia above all else puts the interest of the family first and foremost,” said Mr. Kechichian, the analyst [at the King Faisal Center] who knows many royals.“Not a single member of the family will do anything to hurt the family.”
