I was surprised when I saw this article by Thomas Friedman on "oil dictators." I was surprised because I have noticed that Friedman, ever since he was officially invited to Saudi Arabia after Sep. 11, never ever criticizes the Arab oil dictators. But then I read the piece and was no more surprised. Notice that in this article, he considers Chavez (who was elected) a dictator but NOT the King of Saudi Arabia. I finished the article having learned about the US media what I had not known before.
