Who Controls the Media?
In December, 2011 a mission was formed of Arab League's representatives to investigate reported problems in Syria. You can read about their findings in the following link:
The people of Syria want Assad in power and they have demonstrated repeatedly their overwhelming support for him. As proved by the mission that did the study on Syria sent by the Arab League in the below article, the ones causing the violence, unrest and killing of innocent civilians was not the Syrian government but foreign fighters (supported by Israel, America, Qatar and Saudi Arabia). Although this was clearly detailed in the Arab Observers report, this information was buried and not given media play even in the Arab world. Instead, the Observers were denounced as being noneffective because their truthful report did not go with what the destroyers of Syria wanted.
Merely looking at the coverage of the Syrian conflict, it becomes obvious that there are hardly any ethics or standards left, at least as regards the corporate and mainstream media outlets, some of which are even taxpayer-funded.
In the old days of journalism, we were taught that there were almost always two sides to a story, if not more sides than that. Indeed, part of the professional challenge of journalism was to sort out conflicting facts on a complicated topic. Often we found that the initial impression of a story was wrong once we understood the more nuanced reality.
Today, however, particularly on foreign policy issues, the major U.S. news outlets, such as The New York Times and The Washington Post, apparently believe there is only one side to a story, the one espoused by the U.S. government or more generically the Establishment.
We are an awesome revolutionary force. Creative destruction is our middle name. We tear down the old order every day... Seeing America undo old conventions, they [our enemies] fear us, for they do not wish to be undone... We wage total war because we fight in the name of an idea... Stability is for those older, burnt-out countries, not for the American dynamo (Michael A. Ledeen, Freedom Chair holder at the American Enterprise Institute
