I happen to have a very low opinion about mass media in the enlightened western regimes. They do spin truth to fit a particular government agenda (e.g., Iraqi WMD and Libyan campaign). The regimes in question too can not be trusted. As for the transparent expenses of the European royal houses, I do not believe them as they can be doctored.
I guess that comes from being from a different culture. If you cannot trust your own media you are more likely not to trust others' either. Unfortunately, I do believe many media spin truth, mostly in non-democratic regimes (and American media also tend to strongly favor one party over the other). In general I do think that most western media does try to report on what really happens and not favor their government (typically they are quite critical of the current government, independent of the regime; again, with the exception of the States that imo is so polarized that it shows in all most all areas of life (not trying to start a political debate, just acknowledging that not all western media can be grouped together). That doesn't mean they cannot be misled or not have access to all relevant information.

Most importantly, I don't think any government has anything to do with a private blog about prices of royal clothes. Except of course the Jordanian court who felt threatened by a simple report on freely available information and forced them into no longer reporting about them (so essentially curtailed freedom of press).

The full statement (Arabic)

Following is the translation of the Arabic text:


For the first time, the RHC admitted that most of her majesty`s outfits are either borrowed from fashion houses or purchased at special prices.
Queen Rania seems like nice dowm to earth person but in this statemet she come across as a snob;sure she understands what bother her poeple her parade of the expensive clothes loans or not borrowd or not; knowning some own countrymen struggle to have decent meal and roof above their head....it's more a question of bad taste and Rania should be carful and understand that's point come over her obsession for fashion

Interesting: so they are attending the American's president's son-in-law's brother's wedding. I guess that means that they also know Jared personally?

Queen Rania delivers a letter to all Jordanians
Quote:
My brothers and sisters, the sons and daughters of our beloved Jordan,

I greet you with much affection and appreciation.

As I write this letter, I am well aware that you never expected me, Um Hussein, to address you with a message that carries within it a sense of disappointment, but, as family members say to each other, “sometimes disappointment comes from a place of love.” As I put pen to paper, I am all but certain that many will criticize and disapprove of my speaking out - even those who have my best interests at heart - and I will undoubtedly hear the comment “you shouldn’t have spoken out yourself.”

However, times have changed, and what applied in the past is no longer valid. Today, social media can serve as either the greatest champion or enemy of the truth – with many abusing these platforms to bully, to sow doubt in every achievement, and to stifle every glimmer of hope.

For a while, I thought I had grown accustomed to being intentionally thrust out of nowhere into debates occupying public opinion – that is, until the recent teachers’ strike, which has thankfully ended with the return of our students to their schools. This time, I found myself in the eye of the storm and at the center of a disproportionate smear campaign, with no idea why I had been dragged into it! Nonetheless, throughout the recent weeks of public sparring, I refrained from commenting to avoid being accused of trying to hijack the conversation. But we all have a responsibility towards the truth, at all times.
