Mideast peace process: 'a media circus which will fail'

Also, two US publications are sounding the alarm about Bulgaria, which is now in its second month of protests. People there are furious at government corruption. Finally, China's People's Daily is saying jilted mistresses are doing a better job than government departments in fighting corruption there.
