The Independent: 'We'll give you this story on Syria: True or false, it does not matter!'

This is how the Independent (UK) summarizes 'Syria-news-by-video':
"... Robert Fisk writes in today’s Independent about the difficulty journalists have verifying the seemingly endless stream of videos documenting Syria’s warWhile this one appears to be genuine, there is no way of knowing. Even if it isn’t, the fears and hopes and frustrations that were discussed certainly are." (... so it's fair to print, and caption as reality? This is like saying Zombies' movies can be reproduced as 'news' because the 'fears' they portray are real!)
