I was thinking about Syrian regime media: it would be fair to characterize the content as schizophrenia. Neil MacFarquhar and other Western journalists who don't know Arabic and (in the case of MacFarquhar) don't have credibility got it wrong: MacFarquhar said often that you would get the impression that all is well if you tune in to Syrian regime TV. Absolutely untrue, but that would not be the first untruth by MacFarquhar. Syrian regime media oscillate between two extremes: from over dramatized and highly sensational (Fox News style) the-sky-is-falling coverage of "terrorists" behind every corner and about armed confrontations to light-hearted coverage of mundane matters on how to tie your hair in the hot weather. It is very weird. You can watch an hour of drama news and then proceed to watch a light-hearted Syrian comedy or farce. Most unusual. As if there are two official media policies clashing before your eyes. Yesterday, I received a message from a Syrian in which he told me: "As for your theory about Syrian media, I worked there for a while and I can assure you that 90% is fabrication and 10% are untrue".
