Propaganda War on Syria
Lies, damn lies, and scoundrel media lies about Syrian conflict.
by Stephen Lendman
Major media scoundrels suppress truth and full disclosure. In times of war or when they're planned, it dies first.
John Pilger calls journalism war's first casualty. It's a "weapon of war," he says.
"(V)irulent censorship" by misinformation or "omission" condones imperial lawlessness.
George Seldes once called media scoundrels "the most powerful force against the general welfare of the majority of the people."
Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) calls "news" largely "the actions and statements of people in power." Big media and reporters regurgitate what they say as fact.
