Maybe if Al-Akhbar and their team of mis-informed 'journalists' (lets face it anyone can be a journalist these day and by the looks of this post a no-body from the streets was used to write this) took the situation in Syria a bit more seriously rather than make up parody accounts of news agency then maybe your brand of churnalism would be taken a bit more seriously.
