For those who wonder. Ash-Sharq Al-Awsat gives very prominent coverage of mini-Hariri. His statements are often headlines. The reason is this: when Rafiq Hariri died, the House of Saud met and agreed that Prince Salman is officially designated to run the Hariri family (politically)--I am not making this up. It was Prince Salman who told Baha' (Sa`d's brother) that was not chosen as his father's successor, and the former was furious. Oh, and Prince Salman owns Ash-Sharq Al-Awsat. So now you understand.
