Both Crap. Antarctica is the world's largest desert, the North Arctic is the second, and the Sahara is the third.

Parts of the Ocean could be considered a "desert", but these are instead classified as "Anoxic" or "Hypoxic" zones, caused by expanses of ocean with low amounts of chlorophyll and oxygen. Calling them a "desert" is a media term only.
