History

Founded in 2011, Syria News is a news and opinion website about Syria and the current conflict. Syria News has an extreme Pro-Syrian bias and is highly critical of all opposition. The website lacks transparency as they do to provide an about page. The domain is registered in Iceland.

Funded by / Ownership

Syria News lacks transparency as they do not disclose ownership. Advertising and donations generate revenue.

Analysis / Bias

Syria News uses extremely loaded language to convey emotion against the opposition and often only presents one side of the story, such as this Russian Foreign Ministry: US CENTCOM Commander McKenzie is Lying. This story, like most, relies on the use of self linking. Self-linking is when you link to other pages on your own website rather than outside credible sources.

Editorially, they strongly support the Syrian state and President Bashar Al-Asaad through stories such as this Russian Forces Patrol Rams into US Oil Thieves Army in Northern Syria and this President Assad and First Lady Asmaa Vote in the Liberated City of Douma. Through the support of Al-Asaad, they also support the left-wing Arab Socialist Ba’ath Party. In general, Syria News promotes one-sided pro-Syrian state news best described as propaganda.
