Protests in Jordan

Do you notice that the country that is least covered in terms of protests is Jordan?  Yesterday, there were demonstrations that called for the downfall of the government and they were covered widely in the Arabic press (even the reactionary media of the Arab counter-revolution) but not in the Western press. Worse, in Western media they still invite Jordanian king to speak about the aspirations of the Arab youth.  They really think that the guy is popular among young Arabs.  Hilarious.
