Hapless hacks on Syrian TV

If they weren’t defenders of the indefensible, I’d almost feel sorry for the hacks working for Syrian State TV these days.

Meanwhile Reem Haddad– who said the flood of refugees from Jisr al-Shughour crossing the Turkish border as tanks approached was like people going to stay with their mums for a bit– has been dismissed from her job as government spokesperson to the international media.

Did the Syrian regime really think their lies would be believed by the outside world if spoken by an attractive red-haired woman with a smart English accent?
