Trusted Syrian News Sources - By Brandon Turbeville

You Want A Real List? Directory Of Accurate Alt Media Sources On Syria

18-22 minutes      

By Brandon Turbeville

As mainstream media doubles down in its coordinated propaganda  against the Syrian government and in support of direct Western military  intervention, the alternative media has been going up against  unprecedented censorship on the part of the social media and Internet  corporate giants at the same time. For that reason, it is becoming  harder and harder to find accurate sources of information regarding  Syria as well as all other topics in a general Internet search. While  readers of the alt media before Google’s purge and censorfest took place  have largely remained, the amount of people being exposed to new  information and an alternative to government and corporate propaganda  has been drastically reduced.

In addition, with disturbed “researchers” and various shadowy  organizations creating silly lists of “Assadists,” “Fake News,” and  “Russian propaganda,” I thought it might be useful to create a list of  my own, containing a number of the same names, in order to provide a  list of researchers, journalists, and activists who have been working to  expose the true agenda behind what is happening in Syria today in hopes  that my readers will also find their work and find access to additional  sources of information which certainly will not be available in the  mainstream press. This, of course, is in addition to my own work.

So, in light of having been left off a few of these lists, please  forgive the shameless self-promotion of putting my own name and website  first.

Brandon Turbeville – I’ll start by mentioning my own work which can mostly be found here at Activist Post but also at my own website, Facebook and Twitter. In addition, I have written two books on the subject, the most relevant being Resisting The Empire: The Plan To Destroy Syria And How The Future Of The World Depends On The Outcome, and The Road To Damascus: The Anglo-American Assault On Syria.

Vanessa Beeley – Vanessa Beeley is perhaps the tip of the  spear in the effort to stop the war in Syria and expose Western  propaganda such as the White Helmets and Western funding of terrorism in  Syria. Vanessa writes regularly for 21stCenturyWire and her own website, The Wall Will FallFacebook and Twitter links can be found here.

Eva Bartlett – Eva Bartlett has been opposing Western  imperialism and Zionism for years even long before the Syrian crisis  began, having lived in Gaza for a number of years covering the Zionist  occupation. Eva has written for a number of different media outlets but  her own website is In Gaza. She is highly active on social media as well with her Facebook and Twitter feeds linked here. Unfortunately, her social media accounts come under constant attack.

Syrian Girl (Maram Susli, Mimi al-Laham) – Having used a  number of names during the course of the Syrian crisis, “Syrian Girl”  has been on the front lines of deconstructing Western propaganda and  myths about Syria. An actual Syrian, “Syrian Girl” was probably the  first researcher or activist to speak out on a large scale regarding  what was actually happening in Syria. She’s probably the most censored  pro-Syria activist. Facebook deleted all her accounts and YouTube (here and here)  has since taken down her video account as well (although she is in the  process of rebuilding it). For now, she is most active on Twitter but also restarted her Facebook pages (here and here).

Afraa Dagher – Afraa Dagher is not only a Syrian but she  continues to reside in Syria and has remained there since the beginning  of the crisis. Afraa began her commentary by doing a number of  on-the-ground reports from Syria with journalists in the United States.  Like, Syrian Girl, her YouTube account was disabled by YouTube and many  of her previous videos deleted. She now has a primarily social media  presence on Facebook and Twitter, although she regularly writes articles submitted to a variety of websites such as Syria News.

Sarah Abed – Sarah Abed has written a number of incredible  articles regarding the Syrian crisis for MintPress News but she  maintains her own formidable website known as The Rabbit Hole. Her articles regarding the Kurdish issue make her work indispensable to understanding ongoing events. You can follow her on Facebook and Twitter.

Ziad Fadel – Ziad Fadel, owner and operator of Syrian Perspective,  has provided daily updates as to what is taking place in Syria since  the beginning of the Syrian crisis, a service Fadel has continued until  this day. His witty barbs are appreciated nearly as much as his  information which has and continues to be indispensable. Syrian  Perspective can be followed on both Twitter and Facebook (here and here).

Tony Cartalucci – Another pioneer in alt media coverage of  geopolitics, Tony Cartalucci has covered the Syrian crisis since day one  as well as the tragic war in Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, color  revolutions across the world and remains possibly the only website  consistently covering the Wests’ destabilization efforts in Thailand.  Cartalucci’s website is invaluable for detailed articles archived and  those continuing to be produced regarding the Syrian crisis. He and Land Destroyer Report, can be followed on Facebook and Twitter (here and here).

Caitlin Johnstone – Caitlin Johnstone is both a poet and a journalist who writes for Medium. However, her work can also be found on her website CaitlinJohnstone.comFacebookSteemit, and Twitter.

Steve Chovanec – Steve Chovanec has consistently produced  in-depth detailed articles about Syria both as a freelance journalist  and for his own site Independent Underground. His social media websites can be found here for Facebook and here for Twitter.

Patrick Henningsen – Also writing for 21stCenturyWire, Patrick hosts a radio program (Sunday Wire) as well as a television program (UK Column Live)  on the website in addition to producing a number of brilliant articles  regarding the Syrian crisis. He has also traveled to Syria on a number  of occasions. You can also follow Patrick on Facebook and Twitter.

Tim Anderson – Dr. Tim Anderson out of Australia has long been  opposing Western destabilization activities and has been working toward  exposing the deceit and propaganda of the Western media and their  respective governments since the beginning of the crisis. Having written  a book on the subject, The Dirty War On Syria  and founding the organization Hands Off Syria, Tim Anderson’s work has  been instrumental in dismantling a great deal of Western propaganda. He  can be followed on Facebook and Twitter as  well and his organization, Hands Off Syria can be found online and on  social media as well. Hands Off Syria has many different chapters so be  sure to check and see if there is one near you, particularly if you are  in Australia.

Sarah Abdallah – Sarah has made virtually every single “hit  list” coming from the MSM and/or NGO Industrial Complex. At one point,  she was labeled a spy and, at another time, a robot. She’s real though  and she posts extremely accurate and hardhitting information. Find her  at facebook and twitter. She also has a website,

Carla Ortiz – It may seem strange to note that a Bolivian  actress and filmmaker is a source of news about the conflict in Syria  but the fact is that, ever since traveling to Syria in person, Ortiz has  been very outspoken about the media propaganda surrounding the crisis  and has been a powerful voice attempting to bring the truth to light.  Follow Carla on Facebook and Twitter.  Carla has even been the source of a number of groundbreaking reports,  adding legitimate journalist, far beyond the scale of any MSM circus  act, to her resume.

Sharmine Narwani – Sharmine has been covering the Syrian  crisis from the region for quite some time but she also covers  geopolitics as a whole. Her articles have been found a number of places  and they are always chock full of detailed information useful for  understand the potential agendas of the national players. Although her  articles appear at a number of different outlets, she usually posts them  on her social media accounts such as Facebook and Twitter.

Janice Kortkamp – Janice has gained notoriety for her repeated  trips to Syria and her outspoken opposition to American involvement  there. Despite having labeled herself as an “American housewife in  Syria,” Janice has clashed with a number of pro-war commentators on the  issue of Syria. She’s also held a number of in-person talks and  maintains a sizeable social media following (when the thought police  aren’t shutting down her accounts). She can be found on Facebook here but she also maintains a website called Syria Resources.

Pearson Sharp – Reporting for One America News Network,  Pearson Sharp’s report from Douma was instrumental in deconstructing and  exposing the alleged chemical weapons attacks that took place there.  Pearson can be found on both Facebook and Twitter as well as on OANN.

Daniel McAdams – Writing for the Ron Paul Institute, Daniel  McAdams repeatedly engages in battles against the pro-war NGO and MSM  pro-terrorist community. His reports are always based in the concept of  individual liberty, non-intervention, and, of course, that necessary  aspect of reporting that MSM always tends to leave out – facts.

Cory Morningstar – Writing for The Art Of Annihilation and Wrong Kind Of Green, Cory has produced some excellent detailed pieces on the pro-war NGO industrial complex. She can be found on Facebook and Twitter.

Mark Taliano – “A retired high school teacher who spends much  of his time as an activist and citizen journalist”, Mark is also the  author of Voices From Syria and covers events in Syria for various online publications such as Common Dreams. You can find him on Facebook and Twitter.

Marwa Osman – Marwa is a journalist and commentator for  several media outlets but she is also an excellent source of information  regarding the situation in Syria. You can find her on Facebook and Twitter.

James Corbett – James has covered many stories and issues over  time but he has covered Syria extensively. Corbett’s videos are  well-known to be extremely detailed and well-researched but also short  and to the point. James can be found most readily at YouTube and his own website
