Corruption? What corruption?

Corruption? What corruption?

UAE dailies steer clear of Iranian claims of corruption in gas deal.

As Kipp notes in today’s story about the Iran-Crescent gas dispute, UAE media seems to have selectively edited the international wire agency coverage of the ongoing kerfuffle. Here’s Reuters:
Iran’s president said on Thursday a contract to sell gas to Crescent Petroleum of the United Arab Emirates was based on an unacceptably low price and the deal had been tarnished by corruption.

Here’s the paper version of Friday’s Khaleej Times (the story doesn’t appear at all on the daily’s Web site):
Iran’s president said on Thursday a contract to sell gas to Crescent Petroleum of the United Arab Emirates was based on an unacceptably low price.

Surely the editors cut the last bit due to space constraints.

Among local media, Chris Stanton of The National has the most thorough reporting on the matter, but even the Abu Dhabi daily hasn’t touched the bribery charge.

This is noted, of course, with one important caveat: The Iranian president is widely thought to be a complete lunatic.
