I’m Sameer from Damascus. Life in Syria’s capital through the lens of a local cameraman

The West in general hears precious little of life in Damascus. Our State funded media, who most Australians trust, has become propaganda central, our ‘Aunty’ no more. For all intents and purposes a Murdoch run outlet devoid of fact, balance or nuance regarding the Syrian crisis. While the MSM focuses on the Islamist held areas, showing footage from the White Helmets with scant regard to their associations with known terrorists or acting skills. Our ‘Aunty’ airs terrorists’ footage and the people take them at their word. Meanwhile an ancient, world heritage listed city, crowded with civilians is under attack and it’s hardly seen as newsworthy.
