An interesting snippet from the Angry Arab.

Husni Mubarak visited Doha, Qatar after years of a feud between the two rulers.  (Of course, Mubarak stopped in Abu Dhabi first: the Emir of Qatar told me that Mubarak receives a blank check from the ruler of UAE in every visit–a blank check, literally).  Mubarak wants to make up with Qatar during the “elections” because he worries about AlJazeera coverage.  Unfortunately, his plan will work: Aljazeera’s coverage softened greatly after the rapprochement between Saudi Arabia and Qatar.  Arab rulers can make up while sharpening knives behind the curtain.

How has the Al Jazeera coverage of Egypt’s election been? Anyone..?
