Maram Susli aka ‘Syrian Girl’ aka ‘Mimi al Laham’ has done great work as a video blogger countering mainstream reporting on Syria. Remarkable how she is treated as a strange phenomenon by these ‘journalists’ who seem surprised that at the ‘tender age’ of 27 she actually knows something and has opinions other than those handed to her by the mainstream media. They have to assume that someone must be telling her what to say rather than accept that she is looking at different news sources and analyses and drawing her own conclusions. Of course. They are ‘presenters’ not ‘journalists’ and they may be unfamiliar with the distinction.
