From an excellent article:

How the Corporate Media is Snookering You on Syria

“For those versed in the black arts of propaganda, the hijacking of Arab Spring must be a beauteous thing to behold.”  . . .

“As with Libya, Western countries were covertly overthrowing a Middle East regime, just as they have done over the decades. And, as before, the media said not a word about what was really going on. So the public did not really understand, and there was practically no debate at all.”  . . .

“When almost no media anymore question these barely disguised coups against uncooperative standing governments, we are in very deep trouble. Because if we can’t count on the media to tell us what is going on in far-off places, what may we expect of them closer to home?  We are witnessing a crisis for journalism that is nothing less than a crisis for democracy itself.”
