Syria's 'propaganda war' on Homs

Narrative on state media stands in stark contrast to reports from activists and foreign media on the ground.

    The Syrian government has allegedly tried to cover-up evidence of war crimes after its almost month-long bombardment of an opposition-controlled district in Homs by clearing out bodies of civilian casualties and through a media propaganda campaign.

    The country's state TV channel has accused international journalists, including British photographer Paul Conroy who reported on the "military's massacre" of civilians in Bab Amr after he fled the district, of being part of an international conspiracy to undermine the government.

    Al Jazeera's Laurence Lee reports on how the media is one of the government's main tools to maintain popularity as it violently attempts to crush the year-long uprising.
