Sabra and Shatila massacre
A review of how the western corporate media reported on the legacy of Ariel Sharon following his death in early January 2014, together with evidence of the unreported reality.
Document:Filtering Sources On The Syrian Wararticle4 February 2014Propaganda
Corporate media
2011 Syrian Insurgency
A cogent demonstration of the gross bias of the mainstream media in its coverage of the ongoing 2011 Syrian insurgency. It shows that they are immune to any lessons of their similarly mendacious reporting both before and during the 2003 Iraq war
