Western media on the population of Qusayr

“Told only 150 households still in #Qusayr, about 500 people — used to be a city of 30,000,” she wrote."  Wait: even the Economist just reported that the entire population of Qusayr remained throughout and was being attacked by Hizbullah and Syrian regime forces.  Suddenly, you now state that a mere 500 remained? But how you reconcile this claim with the lies of last week when you said that the entire population of Qusayr had stayed and was facing imminent danger?  And why did you not report about the evictions and flight from Qusayr when the armed rebels took over the city a year ago?  And should there not be somebody who tries to reconcile the various contradictory lies of Western media?
