American Government Shutdown Creates American Broadcast News Media Shutdown on Syria

Prior to October 1, 2013, the American Broadcast News Media carried numerous stories daily about the Unrest in Syria that has been going on for over two years.

Then October 1 rolled around and the partial American government shutdown (ref: United States federal government shutdown of 2013) began. As an aside to all the rigamarole concerning this American government shutdown, I have read a couple interesting articles online concerning the shutdown; they are:
So, what has been happening in Syria? I sure as heck cannot tell by listening to American broadcast news media; I haven't seen or heard anything from them about Syria since the American government shutdown began. It is as if the only news is this darn government shutdown and nothing is happening in Syria, at least nothing newsworthy according to what is not being reported by the American broadcast media.

Has the American government shutdown shut down the civil unrest in Syria? Not really. But the ineptness of the print and broadcast media in the United States of America in regards to reporting of the news would make that seem likely if one were prone to reaching a conclusion based on conjecture.

Inquiring minds like mine have turned to other media in order to learn what has going on in Syria since the first of October. Here, if you want to find out for yourself, go on over to BBC News Middle East and The Telegraph Middle East Syria News, both of which originate in the UK, and also over to The Guardian Syria pages, US office of the UK parent company the Guardian Media Group.

I say shame on the American Broadcast News Service for doing a half-baked job of news reporting. If you want to know what's new, you cannot depend on American television news programs. It is no wonder that I often turn to news reporting agencies outside of the United States, usually those from UK  (as cited in the preceding paragraph) and from Scandinavian countries.

I can tell you whats happening. Supposed Muslims who care only for personal power (AKA the government) are killing other muslims who wish to have the right to exterminate each other over the proper words to say while bowing like a drone to Mecca. See? Simple.
