ASSAD’S PROPAGANDA CHANNELS IN A NUTSHELL. ONE DEAD MAN. ONE ONE CHANNEL HE’S A MARTYR. ON THE OTHER HE’S A TERRORIST. BOTH CHANNELS OWNED BY ASSAD. Damascus (Midan) : July 24, 2012 - The first channel, Addunia TV, shows the man dead in a pool of blood with his hands tied behind his back and a packet of ‘Matte’ (a drink that is quite popular with shabiha (Assad gangs)) by his side. The reporter says he was shot dead by ‘terrorists’ in his home.
Then on Al-Ikhbariya channel (also Assad owned) they run a story on the exact same man. However this time Assad soldiers display his ‘terrorist military’ uniform and rifle outside his house. Then we see the same man in roughly the same position as on Addunia TV, but the packet of ‘Matte’ is gone and we are not shown his tied hands. Instead we are told that not only was he a sniper terrorizing the neighborhood, but he was also an expert bomb-maker that creates improvised explosive devices.
Even when Assad’s forces / supporters / media complex lie, they do a terrible job. And yet there are still those that believe and watch this filth.
The man is a resident of Midan. He, like dozens of others that day had their homes invaded by Assad’s forces, were tied up, badly beaten then executed. The reason? Because that’s what Assad’s forces do.
