Political groups in the US purporting to represent the antiwar movement are touring Eva Bartlett calling her an “independent journalist” even though she travels with Assad officials & Syrian military security.
This post is from Pakistani journalist Usman A Khan Tahir about the Syrian & other journalists reporting from within east Aleppo primarily via social media & who represent the voices of popular opposition to Assad’s dictatorship:
For those who say: “There are no journalists in east Aleppo.”
Just with the team OGN (On the Ground News) alone there are three English speaking journalists: Bilal Abdul Kareem, Abdussamad Dagül (he even speaks German and Turkish) and Muhammad Al-Ghazi.
Furthermore, there are Syrian journalists and citizen journalists inside east Aleppo, who are regularly keeping us updated from there.
There’s Lena al-Shamy. Is she a “jihadist” or part of the MSM propaganda that some of you keep blabbering about? She exists, she’s there and keeping us updated, and that too in English.
There’s Zouhir Al-Shimale, he’s another Syrian journalist from besieged Aleppo who speaks English and is keeping us updated. He’s neither a “jihadist” nor a MSM propagandist. He also exists.
There’s Monther Etaky, a citizen journalist from besieged Aleppo who also speaks English, and guess what? He exists.
There’s Rami Zien, a Syrian journalist fluent in English and reporting at the risk of his own life from besieged Aleppo. He also exists.
There’s Mr Alhamdo, a teacher, activist and a reporter from inside east Aleppo who also speaks English, and he also exists.
There are many others who are reporting in Arabic, like Mojahed Abu Joud and others.
So please tell me how many RT reporters are inside besieged Aleppo? While you are it, please let me know if your favorite “independent journalist” or should I say regime propagandist, Eva Bartlett, has ever been inside besieged territory. She claims she has been to Syria many times and that Syrians love Assad, but has never been inside rebel-held territory or besieged territories like Madaya, Daraya and East Aleppo.
