  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • “Neither the WDR nor Arte have spoken to us in the last six months. Despite this, the WDR has been spreading rumours about defects to the film for the last two weeks. We were asked to answer a catalogue of fifteen questions from the WDR about the film, sent to us last week, within three days. We received no communication with regards to it. I am debating, to publish the catalogue with our answers. We have nothing to hide.”

    Dutch journalist from Tabaqa, Syria: “IS is defeated, what remains is a ghost town”

  • By: Benjamin de Wolf
  • “Apart from the horrible war, the poverty in Syria is now grave. People don’t have anything anymore. Here in Tabaqa, I see kids scavenging what they can find from garbage pails. There are hardly any NGO’s in this Kurdish SDF-area in Syria. They are totally blocked by Turkey and by Iraqi Kurds. The borders are closed off. Nothing will enter via Turkey due to the wall, nothing via Erbil due to the closed border and nothing via the Syrian governmental zone, due to the war. It’s bizarre.”

    Damning study: ‘German Main Stream Media biased and uncritical during migrant crisis’

  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • “All three newspaper editors comment on the mega theme ‘refugees/asylum seekers’ very intensively. The analysis of these opinion based articles (Lead articles, editorials, etc.) confirm the findings we referred to earlier: seven out of ten relevant actors are part of the political elite. In the context of the ‘indexing’-thesis, the target audience for these commentaries is not the readers, but politicians.”

  • By: Vincent van den Born

(…) I am pleased that today we could receive a committed patriot here in Budapest. Today, I am convinced that patriotic governments are successful governments.
