Media sources on Syria, and the other ME wars:
Most of the western media, plus the Gulf Monarchy media (Al Jazeera, Al Arabiya), is deeply biased and in many cases engaged in fabrications to support a propaganda war against Syria. That includes the ‘liberal’ media such as the New York Times and the UK Guardian. So where might we go to find credible or independent information? In an age of propaganda wars there is no simple answer. However here is a short list of relevant online sources, relatively independent of big power agendas, with services in English, as well as other languages. They should help an honest observer stay better informed.
