We know the American media is in Libya, but why aren’t they reporting on the military operation that more and more of the country is saying that they are opposed to?
Wayne Madsen was in Tripoli on assignment and says that what the members of the mainstream media reported while on the front “had nothing in common with what we all saw on the grounds.”
“The media is silent,” says Madsen. “Worse,” he adds, “they are putting out disinformation rather than reporting facts as they see them on the ground.”
Madsen says that Gaddafi is only gaining support in Tripoli, and as rebels rejoin his forces, the media in America does not bother telling people. “Many former rebels say, ‘look, we weren’t happy with Gaddafi,’” says Madsen, but as NATO is slaughtering civilians, they are becoming more in favor of the colonel, despite his reputation, because he is a Libyan national. And, most importantly, not a foreign invader.

Hmm, see Sky News seems to me the most reliable news source and they've said repeatedly that not only are they not allowed to say anything out of terms while reporting inside Libya due to having government officials looking over their shoulder to give a non-threatening stance on the country and its government but also that more and more of Gaddafi's own men have committed suicide or ran over the border into Tunisia rather than fire upon the people.
So which is it? Cause honestly, while I can believe that not everything going on in Libya is reported for the same reasons Sky News tell us they can't, the rebels defecting to become loyal to Gaddafi......I just don't buy it somehow.
