From simplification to outright distortion

We have been warning about the overly simplistic way people categorize supporters between pro-syrian and anti-syrian. Here this simplification creates the most dangerous distortion. Again the media, you guessed is main culprit:

Thousands of pro-Syrian protesters have spent three nights in a tent city in central Beirut outside the government office of anti-Syrian Prime Minister Fouad Siniora.
They accuse Mr Siniora of being too pro-Western and anti-Syrian, and of failing the Lebanese people.

What? This is what these half-brains understood from the protests? Demonstrators accuse seniora of being too pro-Western and anti-Syrian? That’s it? Please somebody repress the freedom of the press thank you.
