Western reporting on international events in the corporate media is largely controlled by CIA influence in the media. This makes it possible to manufacture consent for or conceal the US role in conflicts throughout the Mideast and the world. Their techniques of propaganda have become so sophisticated and their control of the mainstream media so absolute that few Americans and not many more Europeans have a clue as to what is really going on in Syria, Libya, Ukraine and elsewhere.
John Mesler of New Jersey is an ordinary American whose eyes were opened when he started to look at the victims of US imperialism through their eyes rather than the lens of the corporate media. Through use of social media, he was able to establish extensive contacts in Syria with people who helped him understand what was really happening while he studied the allternative media for the background to understand why these events were occuring,
Mesler's research led him to go to Syria in April of this year, where he got the chance to talk directly with many Syrians who showed him the facts on the ground in places where travel was not out of the question due to the dangers posed by the ongoing terrorist invasion. On this show, he shares what he has learned.
