Whose side are journalists on?
Don't even ask. We have already linked before to an article on how NGOs have been helping FARC and thus, inadvertently, made it easier for the Colombian army to rescue the 15 hostages. Here is a new link to an article on Pajamas Media about highly regarded European media outlets casting doubt on the hostage rescue, basing their accounts on "reliable" but not named and not indicated sources. It would appear that one of the sources is an independent Swiss diplomat, who has been allegedly mediating between the Colombian Government and FARC. By day, that is. By night, the Government says, he has been acting as a courier for the terrorists. Read the whole piece. Of some interest to those who still trust the MSM.
