In part 1, I wrote of the Guardian’s quite unoriginal Russophobic story cheering for al-Qaeda’s rescuers, the White Helmets. In this second part, I expose other (some serial) offenders, guilty of disinformation on the White Helmets, and war propaganda on Syria to a degree that Goebbels would be envious. They are further guilty of ignoring the sentiments of the overwhelming majority of Syrians who call a spade a spade, a terrorist a terrorist.
The Channel 4 “Fact Check” Card
In The Guardian article in question, the author began by linking to a Channel 4 News smear piece on myself which had nothing to do with the point she was asserting—whether or not the group had al-Qaeda ties—but which was issued a year ago with the sole intent to cherry-pick my words to discredit myself. Such non sequitur arguments are commonly used by those who cannot backup their statements with facts and who wish to, instead, deflect and mislead.

In his introductory remarks, he writes:
“In a time of universal deceit, telling the Truth is truly a revolutionary act, and that has never been more apparent than in today’s hyper-partisan climate, where facts no longer hold sway, and one’s opinion is now only as strong as the crowd that surrounds it. It has been conditioned over many years into the masses that the way they feel, is now more important than the facts at hand. Now some may say that is a good thing, that information is so manipulated today, that all we have is the way we feel, our gut instincts. But once we realize that our feelings have long been programmed and manufactured by way of news media and entertainment, the very feelings we are now being told to trust, we begin to see the long-term agenda at play — the manufactured consent of the masses. So it has never been more important to question everything, to trust in facts, to trust in what we can prove, as we in the independent media must do better, we must be better, or we will wake up down the line, and realize that we have become the very thing we once despised. And no one embodies the journalistic integrity that is all but absent in MSM today, more so than Eva Bartlett.
Eva is, in my opinion, one of the last surviving investigative journalists, she has made a name for herself as an independent writer and rights activist by traveling to places such as Gaza, Syria, and North Korea, and revealing to the world the stark contrast between want we are told is happening there, and what is actually taking place.”
From James Corbett’s November 6, 2017 post:
“Today we’re joined by Eva Bartlett of InGaza.wordpress.com to discuss her reporting from Syria. We talk about the lies, propaganda and outright fabrications that have attempted to paint the terrorist insurgency as a “civil war” led by “moderate rebels,” including the use of children like Omran Daqneesh and Bana Alabed as unwitting icons for the fake narrative. We also discuss recommended sources for real information about what’s happening in Syria.”
MintPress sat down with the father of the now-infamous Aleppo boy, Omran Daqneesh. Omran’s father, Mohammad Daqneesh, says his son was exploited by Syrian rebels and the media for political gain.
HOMS, SYRIA — On the evening of Aug. 17, 2016, an event that has yet to be adequately explained occurred in the Qaterji District of the Syrian city of Aleppo. Four-year-old Omran Daqneesh, as well as his siblings and parents, were injured in media alleged was an attack by the Russians – or the Syrian military, depending on what source one chose to believe. People in Aleppo suggested it could have been a strike by the US-led coalition. The reality is not yet known. The attack also claimed the life of Omran’s 11-year-old brother, Mohammad Ali Daqneesh.
Overnight, the world was introduced to Omran, who became the poster child of suffering in Syria due to extensive coverage by Western corporate media. The al-Qaeda-affiliated White Helmets, and subsequently the media, made the child’s injuries out to seem far more serious than they actually were.
