Breast cancer, Saudi media, and Laura Bush. Instead of interviewing an Arab scientist who can speak in Arabic--and there are Arab scientists and physicians who are females--Saudi media don't know that--, Al-Arabiya TV (the official propaganda outlet of the Bush administration after the demise of Al-Hurra TV) hosted Laura Bush for half an hour to talk about breast cancer. It was the most informative 30 minutes of TV you can ever watch. She was asked such probing questions as: Tell us. Why is breast cancer bad? But I don't mean to mock that interview. I learned. I mean, after watching the interview, Laura Bush informed me that breast cancer is "bad." All these years, I was under the impression that breast cancer is good.
