columnists for Saudi princes

It was cute last week when editor-in-chief of Ash-Sharq Al-Awsat (mouthpiece of Prince Salman and his sons) said that he is friends with a columnist at Al-Hayat (mouthpiece of Prince Khalid bin Bribe bin Sultan).  It made me wonder: what do those people talk about when they meet? So does a columnist for a Saudi prince brags about his prince when he meets a columnist for another Saudi prince? Does one say to the other: I love your prince, but my prince is even better? It must be quite fun to show them talk about their respective prince/master.
