Phony ‘Houla Massacre’: How Media Manipulates Public Opinion For Regime Change in Syria

Phony ‘Houla Massacre’: How Media Manipulates Public Opinion For Regime Change in Syria

If you are still needing an academic tutorial on exactly how the mainstream media is able to generate a completely phony public consensus to support foreign intervention projects, you need look no further than the dangerous, fictional narrative currently being rolled out regarding Syria.

This past Saturday and Sunday morning, almost every major corporate mainstream newspaper and TV network in North America and in Europe ran with the average headline, “Massacre of the children as Syrian forces hit rebels”, giving hundreds of millions of readers and viewers to artificial impression that it was Syrian government forces – and not western-backed terrorist groups, who carried out a massacre on children and others days ago – even though, the true culprit of these attacks has not yet been determined – a fact which was only briefly mentioned later on in these very same media reports.

    I think we should have had more manipulation(if that’s what you want to call it) or at least more than page 19 coverage of all the murderous brutality and suffering in Africa. In my book that is a better reason to intervene than that WMD stuff. It is disgraceful that we can look the other way.
