The Daily Star

May 1st, 2007 · 1 Comment · Lebanon, Media

The Daily Star is now faithfully republishing (via AFP) unsourced Israeli fantasies.

Syria appparently has an underground missile city with chemical weapons. I think there is a bunker hiding Saddam Hussein in there too, along with Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction.

The Daily Star relies on Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot which quotes “foreign experts”. That is the same newspaper which has been publishing weekly Israeli government-leaked predictions that Syria “will” launch a war on Israel this summer.

    I’ve never had the [mis]fortune of reading Daily Star, but by the sounds of it, I give them as much credibility as Sky News here in the UK. With a serious face and tone, they can pass of the most ludicrous of drivel as ‘breaking news’.
