Mike Robinson is accompanied by Vanessa Beeley in Damascus and Mark Anderson in the USA where the first topic on UK Column News is the jubilation of the population who have been liberated in Aleppo. Many children have come out of hiding for the first time in four years.
Given the way the Syrian occupation has been misrepresented in the mainstream, `fake news` was also featured prominently.
Here`s Zero Hedge:
"Behind almost every liberal crusade of the past several decades, from the blocking of voter ID laws to the Syrian refugee crisis, there has been one man quietly pulling the puppet strings from the background: George Soros. So imagine our complete shock when we discovered Soros to be the financing source behind Facebook's `third-party fact checking` organization retained to flag, and thus eliminate, `fake news.`"
"Just yesterday, Facebook posted the following press release to their website detailing their plans to use a `third-party fact checking organization,` known as The Poynter Institute, to flag `fake news.` The role of the `fact checkers` will be to review news stories and flag anything they deem to be `fake` so that it can be deprioritized on Facebook's news feed."
