Ministry of Propaganda: How the Economist reports developments in Syria!

The Angry Arab News Service

"... On advances by the regime the Economist says: "Yabroud’s fall may prove to be a minor watershed."On an alleged victory by the Syrian rebels: "In the far south, meanwhile, rebels declared a big symbolic victory on March 19th, overrunning a prison in Deraa".  I mean, I know that the Economist is as propagandistic in its coverage of Syria as US newspapers, but the fall of Yabrud is smaller than the takeover of a prison (where the New York Times said that it is not clear it houses political prisoners?)  But then again, I remember when the Economist and all Western media reported that the rebel's takeover of a regime checkpoint in A`zaz is the biggest military victory since Hittin."
