"(A)t no point did he suggest that his reform package was intended to lead to a more democratic system of government."

His constitutional and parliamentary reform prioritizes it. The vast majority of Syrians support it. The Post stopped short of explaining.

It quoted illegitimate SNC 2.0 officials saying he has to go. He's "incapable of initiating a political solution."

Murdoch's Wall Street Journal echoed similar sentiments. On January 6, it headlined "Defiant Assad Rules Out Talks with Rebels," saying:

He "issued a defiant call to war to defend the country against what he called a foreign-inspired rebellion, ruling out talks with rebels and rejecting international peace efforts for a political plan of his own that keeps him in power."

Murdoch's world features demagoguery, managed news, scandal, sleaze, and warmongering. He represents the worst of right-wing extremism.

Famed Chicago columnist Mike Royko (1932- 1997) once said "no self-respecting fish would (want to) be wrapped in a Murdoch paper...."

He's a malevolent force. He's a leading global villain. He has final say on editorial content. He demands going along with his views or leave.

The Journal regurgitated the usual canards. It falsely said Assad "won't cooperate." He's "determined to fight." 

He "ruled out a political settlement except on his own, specific terms. Critics viewed his comments as the harshest declaration of war against the opposition yet."

False! He was conciliatory, responsible and reasonable. He prioritizes peaceful conflict resolution. Journal editors did what they do best.

They turned truth on its head. Anti-Assad sources were quoted. Andrew Tabler is a Washington Institute for Near East fellow. WINEP is a right-wing pro-Israeli front group.

Tabler's a featured AIPAC Annual Policy Conference speaker. He endorses imperial war. He wants Assad ousted. He supports death squad proxies. "Assad must go at all costs," he stresses.

He's "repeating an old, ruthless pattern: escalating defiantly to test exactly where the red line is, and forcing the international community to give concessions in its desire for a political settlement."

Israel is part of the anti-Assad coalition. Mossad-connected DEBKAfile had its say. It headlined "Bolstered by 16 Russian warships, Assad nixes dialogue with 'Western puppets,' " saying:
