      On Democracy Now today: Amy sends another Valentine to Bashar

> This is what Amy Goodman had to say
> <https://www.blogger.com/www.democracynow.org/2015/2/6/headlines#268>
> about yesterday's carnage in Syria on *Democracy Now* this morning:
>     Scores of people were killed in and around the Syrian capital of
>     Damascus on Thursday when rebels fired a barrage of rockets into
>     several neighborhoods and government warplanes bombed
>     opposition-held areas.
> Other than the fact that she has the rebels attacking neighborhoods
> and the regime attacking military positions, the report sounds pretty
> even handed. So why do I say this is pro-Assad propaganda? Because
> according to a more detailed report from *EAWorldView*, yesterday was
> one of Assad's bloodiest. 130 people were killed by the Assad regime
> while 6 may have been were killed by the rebel rockets Amy chose to
> highlight. This is typical of *Democracy Now's* shameful reporting on
> Syria and why I say /"even-handed"/ Amy's reports on Syria are
> Valentines to Bashar. As Desmond Tutu famously said /"If you are
> neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the
> oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you
> say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality."/
