Anne Barnard of the New York Times

This is not about politics for me; it is about journalism.  Just like I detest Donald Trump but I hate US media bias in favor of Hillary because it violates the basic principles of journalism, the Western media coverage of Syria is similar; they are not even trying to be accurate.  Look at this passage by Anne Barnard: "Syrian government aircraft hit the rebel-held Damascus suburb of Daraya with incendiary bombs for the third straight day on Wednesday, according to local council members, who said the weapons were packed with substances akin to napalm." According to Local council members? Are you kidding me here?
