The unraveling of Al-Arabiyya

Al-Arabiyya is now led by Saudi propagandist, Turki Ad-Dakhil, who used to manage the twitter account of Saudi King--kid you not.  Lately, the propaganda intensity has reached an unusual pitch, and little consideration is being paid for general accuracy or credibility--not that it was ever important in such a propaganda outlet for Saudi princes.  Look at this story: the title says that Khamenei called all Syrian people "infidels". You click on the story, and it says: that Khamenei actually said that Iran is fighting infidels in Syria.  It is the Arabic version of Drudge.
