SKY NEWS AND THE WESTERN PRESS HAVE ONCE AGAIN FAILED SYRIA

SOURCE: MINT PRESS

Recent storylines from the Western press on the “Idlib” narrative, particularly the extraordinary spate of “on-the-ground” reports from Sky News reporter Alex Crawford, have failed to paint an accurate picture of the reality faced by Syrian civilians.

Brett McGurk – the U.S. government’s Special Presidential Envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL — described Idlib as “the largest Al Qaeda safe haven since 9/11,” adding that the presence of Al Qaeda in Idlib was a “huge problem” and had been so “for some time.” Mint Press journalist Whitney Webb covered McGurk’s statements and U.S. policy in Idlib in late 2018.

McGurk’s statement seems to have been forgotten by both corporate media and “human rights” commentators alike since the Syrian Army’s military campaign to liberate areas of Idlib began in earnest a few weeks ago. In fact, there seems to be an ongoing campaign by the Western press to normalize militant groups affiliated with Al Qaeda.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Normalizing" the presence of militant groups affiliated with Al Qaeda, is just the point of such coverage; so, ultimately, the Western Press and Sky News have been deliberately distorting the truth, to give their readers the impression that it is completely "customary" for radical jihadis be in control of the city, rather than those forces loyal to the Syrian government and its President, Bashir Al-Assad.
