    You have to remember that the Saudis knew about the invasion of Kuwait after three days of the event - and only because they could not avoid the CNN coverage and the new concept of 24 hour news. and one of the reasons why they created the MBC( now Al-Arabiyah) in the nineties , because they wanted there own version of the CNN- but in Saudi style - i mean total control total censorship. no body dares to mention the names of the Royal family in any Saudi owned media from Lebanon to Reyad , without consultation of the Palace or the security services, its a taboo - you can make any mistake and report any thing but not the family. and that censorship sometimesis absurd and laughable, it depends on the whim of daily editor and his fears and ideology. i remember , in one of the Israeli elections i was covering in the nineties for MBC , i was ordered to ignore the Israeli flags in pictures because there were too many of them !!!!!! they don't like the truth in general they r immunee to it really - they fascinating example of state and self censorship. you have to experiance it to know it. --
