Yes God forbid I ask for you and others to support claims / statements with the sources. Apparently you arent seeing the hypocrisy in your view.
You want to persuade me to your side of the argument, then show me the facts / sources. At least with western media we can disagree with it and do our
own research. You cant say the same about Iran or syria, since you would be arrested and executed for questioning the government and its actions.
Ill take my western media any day of the week and twice on sundays over the forced, beleive it, dont question it or you will be killed mentality of
non Western Media.
As ive stated time and again, you and others coming in here and telling us to beleive something, which would be your word and nothng more, while you
and others go off on western media and freedoms.
Exactly how do you not see your actions and the actions of Syria and Iran not being one in the same?
Let me help -
Iran and Syria tell there people you will beleive what we tell you or else. No questions asked.
You and others come in here and argue western media is lieing, that we should ignore it, and take your word for it, no questions asked.
A few terms to learn -
Conflict of Interest
verifiable sources / facts
Freedom of the Press
Redress of Grievance
In case you havent noticed - The protests in the Western World are not only covered by Western media, but media from non western countries. In
addition you have bloggers / individuals doing their won reporting as to whats going on.
Care to give us a list of the number of media outlets that are able to independantly cover whats going on in Syria? How about when the green
revolution hit Iran?
All media was blocked, except for state media, who are nothing more than counrt stenographers, regurgitating what their handlers tell them to
One has to ask the questions, if your sources are so much better than western media, why arent they allowed to provide confirmation of what they are
reporting? Why arent they allowed to interview people from the opposing views and running that footage on tv?
Does Western media lie? Of course being they are human like th rest of us. However, they arent going to be dragged out of their house in the middle of
the night and never heard from again. A western journalist can freely question the government, all branches, and criticise their actions.
The only time that occurs in Iran or Syria (among others) is generally right before they drive the trucks forward so the people on top will fall off
and sufficate to death from the nooses around their neck.
God forbid a religious question were to come up, less you be killed for crimes against God.
As irritating as Western media and personalities on those channels annoy the piss out of me, they are still more trustworthy and independant than
anything you can offer.
So I ask you again, support your claims with your sources so we all can see the source and review how it obtained the information.
Its that simple....
Absent that you are doing exactly what Iran and Syria (among others) do. Demanding people ignore any source of information that doesnt come directly
from the Iranian / Syrian government.
You guys really need to fix the rectal-cranial inversion and think for yourselves. Start by allowing us to see your sources.
