"Liberal" Saudi Media: yesterday, I saw part of a new religious show on Al-Arabiya TV. They had this Muslim male cleric, Hamzah or something, and he was preaching to a group of women. He basically was telling them that women should not leave their house unless there is a reason: like buying food to cook for their husbands. In US media, AlArabiya TV is hailed as "professional" and "liberal."
