Syrian rebels tried to get me killed, says Channel 4 correspondent
Did Syrian Rebels Lure Journalists to Death Trap?
TorontoStar Syria: British journalist says rebels set him up to die in no man’s land
"Alex Thomson says crew was led to 'free-fire zone' as deaths would discredit Bashar al-Assad's regime
The chief correspondent of Channel 4 News has claimed that Syrian rebels deliberately tried to get him and his crew killed by gunfire from government forces in a bid to discredit the regime of Bashar al-Assad.
Alex Thomson alleged a small group from the Free Syrian Army deliberately guided the vehicle in which he and his Channel 4 News colleagues were traveling into what he described as a as a "free-fire zone" on a blocked road near the city of al-Qusayr, because "dead journos are bad for Damascus"."
This has been spreading quiet fast yesterday and yet no western mainstream news media outlets like CNN, BBC,CBC has picked it up as an important news story?
That tells me a lot about the mainstream news media outlets even thought i am not surprised they arent covering it.
But our local news are? thats surprising.
Alex Thomson stated in his blog after he came back from Sryia that the rebels set up an ambush on him and the UN crew.
I am not surprised by this at all then after if the rebels succeed in there plans the mainstream news outlets would later then report on it.
As Assad forces or the shadow militia of Assad killed Reporter and UN crew
US & allies call for an military intervention on Sryia.
Lucky this didn't happen, i am glad that Alex Thomson made it back in piece.
You see people? this how these rebels, or more rather terrorists do there dirty work.
I can also say the same thing about these claim about the artillery shelling, who are really doing the shelling?
I am not surprised that CNN has been not reporting this tells you that they have an agenda that they are housing with.
This is also how the "news" is created folks. If those journalists got killed I guarantee you 110% that it would have been plastered all over the MSM front and center with a completely new spin on it, no doubt. The general public is living in a complete farce.
And they would blame all on Assad. Even though Assad is not an angle but the ones who want lead Sryia are no better then Assad.
