Bashshar and Syrian media

The demeanor of Bashshar Al-Asad in Syrian media is widely different from his demeanor with Western media.  With Western media, he makes an effort to charm (as uncharming as he is) and to appear likable.  In Syrian media, he does not care at all.  Compare his interview with Barbara Walters with the interview on Dunya TV.
