BBC News blackout on Pro Assad demonstrations in Syria

March 10, 2012

Despite a long piece on Syria in ‘from our own correspondent’ today, the BBC fails to mention the pro-Assad demonstrations and generally gives the impression that all Syrians are anti-Assad and would welcome regime change from the skies (aka NATO bombing campaign).

The facts is we do not know who the ‘rebels’ are or what popular support they have. We do know that Syrians have marched in the capital, Damascus, to express support for President Bashar al-Assad and his reform program, Press TV reports.
