Western Media On Syria ~ Selective Story Telling?



The government’s refusal to grant foreign journalists unfettered access has deepened the fog of war.

Those who get in often do so illegally and as a result are limited to reporting on the bloodshed from behind rebel-held lines.

Some media executives say the lack of press access is unprecedented.

So, what’s with this selective story-telling?

And what ever happened to getting both sides of the story?
