Corporate Media Turns Starvation of Syrians Into War Propaganda
Over the last few days the corporate media has focused on the Syrian town of Madaya in the countryside outside of Damascus. Reports say the Syrian government has laid siege to the town of 40,000 people and is forcing starvation on the residents.

“Thousands of people are dying from starvation inside two besieged towns in Syria. In line with their usual tactics, Bashar al-Assad’s forces and Hizbollah are wielding the weapon of hunger against Madaya and Zabadani,” The Telegraph reports. The Telegraph and the corporate media claim to offer objective reporting from sources in Syria, and yet do not cover reports stating the Isalamist groups Ahrar al-Sham and al-Nusra are responsible for starving the people of Madaya.
