Down with...

If there is one media outlet that poses more harm to the Syrian government and people than any other then it has to be the pathetic excuse of a reporting agency the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

While scanning through my daily Google news on Syria I have grown accustomed to the intense “Media Campaign” by SANA, which has increased in the past few months. Now a days I don’t even need to read the source. If the headline reads something like; Syria is Strong and Faithful to Arab Nation, Information Minister ... OR Relations with Syria are Historical, Lebanese MP Says or even Iranian Mu'talifa Party Arrives in Damascus Then rest assured its being published (only) by SANA.

How and why would crap like Arabs Reject Targeting Syria, Sudanese President Advisor Says be your fucking headline? What’s wrong with these morons? This is not an Arabic Syrian daily where toeing the government line blindly is accepted. This is an English media outlet that everyone can read. So why can’t they utilize it to express their point in a semi-intelligent manner instead of wasting digital storage space with this is diarrhea like shit?

Not all Syrian news agencies are that vile, the newly created Cham Press has done a much better job in gathering pro and anti news articles/analysis regarding Syria while continuing to support the government views. And this is the direction SANA needs to move into if it wants to gain a scrap of dignity, become semi-professional instead of appearing as government whore. This way it can become more of an effective tool in the current one-sided media war and help in making the agency and government look more professional and competent.

But since our glorious bureaucracy is notoriously inept I will assume that things will remain the same at SANA. Thus, and on behalf of all Syrians, I say to the editor of SANA that you and your agency are an embarrassment to all of us and I hope you suffer a sever case of constipation that will hinder your work.
