How the media of Saudi princes work: the story of Iranian losses in Syria

"For a country that does not even acknowledge its troops are fighting on the ground in Syria (calling them instead “volunteers), admitting that it lost 13 commanders in one week is a testament to its deepening involvement and the lack of an immediate exit."   How can you lie in such a short sentence when the links prove you wrong? The link to the Press TV says that they called them "military advisers" and not volunteers or commanders.  And notice how Western reporters rushed to retweet this (purely for political reasons) without bothering to check the link to ensure the accuracy.  Western media now recycle Saudi media.  Fitting, if you ask me.
