CLUELESS: Reporter pushes Syrian propaganda after regime-led tour: 'No evidence' of chemical attack


One America News Network's Pearson Sharp was taken on an "exclusive" tour of Douma, the Syrian suburb where Bashar al-Assad’s regime allegedly launched the chemical weapons attack that killed dozens dead, prompting last weekend's airstrikes by the US, France and Britain.

“We want to announce that One America News has an exclusive discovery. We went to Douma today, we got exclusive access," reported Sharp. "We were brought in with a government escort and shown the areas where the chemical attack allegedly happened ... not one of the people that I spoke to in that neighborhood said that they had seen anything or heard anything about a chemical attack on that day.” He went on to add that the residents he spoke with (in English, Sharp admitted he doesn't speak Arabic) all claimed, “They loved Bashar al-Assad ... They thought he was great.”

On “The News and Why it Matters,” Sara Gonzales, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, Stu Burguiere and Jason Buttrill weren't at all surprised that a "government escorted" tour of "the areas where the chemical attack allegedly happened" would result in such pro-Assad propaganda. What did surprise them was the OANN reporter's conclusion that he'd somehow been granted access to this  "exclusive" information which no other investigating agency had been able to uncover -- including the OPCW (Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons).
