Free Syrian Army and Syrian "rebels"

Early in the Syrian war Western media were all too happy to refer to all Syrian fighters as "Free Syrian Army". The size and power of the non-existing army was highly exaggerated and the presence of the more powerful Jihadi groups was deliberately obscured by the cheerleaders of the FSA in the Western press.  Lately, when it is obvious that only Jihadi groups are doing the fighting say in Aleppo, Western media are all too happy to just refer to them as "Syrian rebels" thus obscuring their Jihadi ideology.
