Abstract [en]

This essay will try to analyze how Syria’s official news agency, SANA, describes events taking place in Syria in the days between 1.4 and 18.4.2012. This will be contrasted with how BBC and CNN describe the events. These other two news agencies were chosen, because they represent media from democratic countries in Europe and the USA. This rebellion became a full scale civil war over time. The sources being used are news articles on the internet.

After a short background, this essay will answer the following questions: How does SANA define the events? How do the foreign media BBC and CNN define the events? In what way does SANA try to drag Israel into this conflict? How do the media describe the number of dead and wounded people and what do they report on the refugees?  How is Kofi Annan’s peace plan described? How do these events affect Syria’s economy? What further events are mentioned?

After trying to answer these questions, an analysis and a discussion will take place concerning their credibility. This will be summed up at this essay’s end.
