Al Jazeera Arabic not covering Bahrain

I just took a look at Al Jazeera Arabic and I don't see ANY coverage of Bahrain there. Can anybody guess why? Angry Arab was correct when he wrote "I do believe that the Qatari government deliberately protected the Bahraini monarchy through its lousy coverage of the repression in Bahrain."

I guess I was too quick to praise Al Jazeera for "changing" over the years into a non-sectarian pro-democracy station.

If you scroll down to the bottom of the headlines they do have a story about Bahrain -- but its just that, at the bottom. One of the photos also shows riot police in Manama.
