Rename it[edit]

Syrian state media coverage of the 2011 Syrian uprising (because all the sources were of SANA) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.249.146.210 (talk) 17:46, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

News article[edit]

This news article could be used to expand the article: [1]--Supreme Deliciousness (talk) 18:57, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

This article is of very poor quality, either it is deleted, or we use some actual sources, not just Youtube links. FunkMonk (talk) 06:36, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

Removing unsourced BLP claims[edit]

I've removed the material regarding the Gay Girl in Damascus hoax as it is largely irrelavnt to the discussion and does not appear to have been state-sponsored agitprop (outside fringe nutters on the interwebs). Keeping it here seems only to serve as a means of expressing personal vendetta agst cis/het males from western activists. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.239.143.244 (talk) 18:15, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Propaganda section[edit]

The first sentence of the propaganda section of the article reads "Propaganda has been used by both the Syrian government[18] and the west since the beginning of the conflict." That section _should_ focus solely on state propaganda (whether by the Syrian Arab Republic or states committed to its destruction) rather than on vague attributions to other actors. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.239.143.244 (talk) 18:36, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

CE[edit]

Tidies prose and simplified headers, I fear for the standing of an article that leans so heavily on CNN, The Guardian and COMbbc. Where are the countervailing articles from RT etc? Keith-264 (talk) 15:11, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

Off topic[edit]

Stop resinseting this paragraph without using the talk page:

The United States' National Public Radio reported in November 2016 that in Damascus "Many here seem to be carrying on with grace and dignity, even enjoying mundane, simple pleasures."[1]

This has nothing to do with the subject of the paragraph (media propaganda) and is hence WP:OFFTOPIC. LucLeTruc (talk) 12:31, 28 January 2017 (UTC)

Alright. Will re-insert as just reporting on everyday life. No worries, mate. XavierItzm (talk) 10:48, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
Which does not make the entry worthy of inclusion. Imho it totally lacks context and gives no useful information at all. But at least now it contains no WP:OR or WP:POV anymore. LucLeTruc (talk) 14:17, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

  1. ^ Alison Meuse (1 November 2016). "The Damascus Paradox: Everyday Life In A Country Torn By War". NPR National Public Radio. Retrieved 5 November 2016. Many here seem to be carrying on with grace and dignity, even enjoying mundane, simple pleasures — like the teenage girls and a 40-something man snapping selfies in front of a giant "I (Heart) Damascus" sculpture in a main square.
