Syria Under Siege: Guarding Against Wolves in Sheep Clothing

Vanessa Beeley & Eva Bartlett vs. Ethical Journalism & Human Decency in the Age of Social Media Reporting

Syria is a cultural, ethnic and religious mosaic of a country with Sunnis, Shias, Druze, Christians. Additional ethnicities include Syrian Kurds, Turkmens, Armenians, Circassians, Turkmens, Greeks, Yezidis, and Shabaks.
Syria is a nation under siege with multiple forces involved, from many sides, by multiple factions and nations. We have Assad’s Forces, Syrian Kurds, FSA, Al-Nusra, ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Hezbollah, Ahrar ash-Sham, Faylaq Al-Sham. And we have multiple nations and their bases: Turkey, Iran, Russia, US-NATO, Israel.
With so many factions involved, so many divided geographical areas, and so many diverging foreign interests, how do journalists go about factual and unbiased reporting on Syria? How can this be done through ethical journalism, but most importantly with human decency? How can outsiders sift through information and misinformation bombardment, and detect facts versus agenda and biased-based reporting?
