Anne Barnard from Beirut: relying on Saudi regime media--as usual

1) she does not read Arabic but insists on referring to the newspaper of Muhammad bin Salman, Ash-Sharq Al-Awsat as "pan-Arab newspaper" without mentioning the ownership and political orientation.  2) she basically calls all opposition who attended the Russia talks as "pro-Asad" but does not refer to rebel representatives who attended as "pro-Muhammad bin Salman" or pro-Erdogan" or pro-Tamim of Qatar".
