Rare Snows and Cold in Saudi Arabia Ignored by US Media

The selective coverage of international weather events by global warming obsessed media continued this weekend as near-record low temperatures in Saudi Arabia mixed with snow went totally ignored by American press outlets.

This goes quite counter to the vast amount of coverage any climate event anywhere on the face of the planet receives if it can be used to support Nobel Laureate Al Gore's alarmist theories.

As such, although Russia's RIA Novosti reported on Friday rare weather conditions in Saudi Arabia, it certainly wasn't surprising that, according to Google News, not one American press outlet found it newsworthy (emphasis added):

Northern parts of Saudi Arabia are covered with snow with schools, mosques and administrative bodies paralyzed, local media reported Friday.

The oil-rich kingdom is being hit with subzero temperatures and snow storms with freezing winds of up to 50 km/h (30mp/h). Some regions have been experiencing problems with water supplies as pipes have frozen, and livestock has died from the cold.

The Saudi Gazette reported late in December that the winter was expected to last 89 days, with temperatures reaching below zero. National media said the winter is the coldest in the country for 20 years.

Hmmm. Coldest in 20 years. I guess that's why our press are disinterested.

Think they'd ignore Saudi Arabia if the temperatures were the warmest in 20 years?

No, I don't either.
