DR. BINOY KAMPMARK: Disagreements between Doha and Riyadh are far from
new. Being eager practitioners of censorship and media control, Riyadh
has shown little time for such bold
media efforts as Al-Jazeera. Bristling at what it has deemed negative
coverage, officials in Riyadh have repeatedly insisted that Qatar be
rebuked for backing its own horses in the Islamist struggle, much of
this borne by the rumblings of the Arab Spring.
