Jim Muir also watches Youtube

I used to really enjoy Jim Muir's dispatches from Lebanon in Middle East International in the past.  Jim Muir is now covering Syria from Lebanon.  Yesterday, I heard him say: that it is not possible to verify information and that most of them come from opposition activists but then added: but the videos on the internet seemed real.  But do those reporters watch videos that air on Syrian regime TV, like Dunya, which do show coaching of "injured" and even applying bandages on healthy people and such? That part of the story is not covered in the press. As Haytham Al-Manna` said: the regime lies, and now the opposition lies.  The regime kills civilians, and now the armed opposition groups kill civilians.
