Lebanese Analyst: Western Media Resorting to Fabricated Stories about Syria http://english.farsnews.com/newstext.php?nn=9005241021
A senior Lebanese analyst warned that the western media are resorting to fabricated stories to spark further tensions in Syria to wage a psychological war against the Damascus government. "Since several months ago, satellite channels, internet websites, TV and radio channels, newspapers and media in and outside the region have embarked on waging intensive media attacks against Syria," Head of the National Council of Audio-Visual Media Qaleb Qandil told FNA on Monday.
He added that these fabricated stories aim to distort the truth in Syria, create a series of demands and attribute them to the people of Syria in a bid to bring them (people of Syria) into confrontation with the Syrian government. Qandil cautioned that enemies have used videos of protests held in Lebanon, Iraq and Jordan in the past and mixed them with fabricated voices in a bid to falsify facts and portray them as new anti-government demonstrations in Syria.
Meantime, he stressed ineffectiveness of such acts and stated that Syrian citizens are well familiar with such plots and conspiracies. Earlier reports from inside Syria had also disclosed that the western countries and media outlets are doing their best to spark tension in the Arab country in an attempt to topple Bashar al-Assad's government and push pro-western figures to power.
