I like the Saudi Arabia-based correspondents of Al-Arabiya TV (my least favorite “news” station). No, I really do. You see they don’t even try to be “fair and balanced.” I greatly enjoyed the report from the Riyadh correspondent today reporting on the visit to Saudi Arabia by Dick Cheney. He kept talking about how the visit was to discuss “the Palestinian cause.” I can see the conversation between Cheney and `Abdullah (not to be confused with PlayStation 3 `Abdullah of Jordan) proceeding as follows: “Well, o great guardian of the two things, you know how much I care about the Palestinian cause….” Oh, and the correspondent–without even smirking–added that the two also discussed “Iranian interference in Iraqi affairs.”
