Western media and propaganda about Syria

Four days ago, the Independent newspaper (which used to be a good newspaper about world affairs) relied on Amir Taheri (the tabloidish pro-Shah, pro-Saudi writer on foreign affairs) to publish a story that Bashshar Al-Asad suffers from "psychological pressure".  Two days later, Le Point in France published a story that Bashshar suffered a stroke.  Three days later LBC TV in Lebanon carried a story that according to a combination of sources: 1) international news sources; 2) French sources; 3) a probability; 4) a senior opposition source; 5) Hariri rag, Al-Mustaqbal; 6) reliable sources in Damascus, Bashshar suffered a stroke.  You see how I don't trust any Western media source about Syria?
