“Good Or Bad, Speak The Truth” – All Syrians Ask For Is Honest Reporting, MSM Responds With Lies


As I traveled throughout Syria during the early half of October, there were many recurring themes. I heard repeatedly of support for the government, how things were so much better before America’s “revolutionaries” entered the country, atrocities committed by America’s terrorists, and of course stories of finding the best in people and life in general amidst such horrors.

One recurring theme I came across, however, was that of the consistent willful obfuscation of the truth by Western corporate media outlets and, more specifically, the journalists they employ.

To anyone who pays even slight attention to the situation in Syria, it is clear that the corporate Western press is not only misrepresenting the crisis but that it is also making up entirely false claims in order to push a particular pro-intervention narrative. Yet it is not only the editing room and the Deep State that issues such propaganda but many of the individual journalists themselves who are completely bought and sold to the agenda emanating from those rooms.

Many times I spoke to Syrians, Syrian journalists, and independent journalists who told me plainly that Western corporate journalists had stood beside them and witnessed the clear evidence of war crimes by terrorists, chemical weapons attacks by terrorists, and other aspects of the conflict who then went straight back to their laptops and typed out a story that reported the exact opposite.

Despite the claims of the pro-war media, Syrians who support their government in this crisis (which is virtually every Syrian) do not demand total worship and unquestioning reporting from foreign media outlets. Indeed, I kept hearing from these Syrians that, if I saw something wrong in their country, I should feel free to write about it. The only concern with what I and others were writing was whether or not it was true.

The mainstream media journalists are acting like they are intelligence agents - propaganda specialists - of the West, and not as unbiased observers. Knowing about Operation Mockingbird, it's likely that the few correspondents reporting on war are agents of the establishment.
