Re: If she hitchhiked...

most, if not ALL Syrians get Al-Jazeera and it is one of the most watched tv stations... in there, it's not paid TV, it's satellite.. and unless you live in a tent in Syria.. then you do have a satellite.

and although the internet is not widely spread.. a very large percentage of the youngster population has access, and are very aware of the events and rss feeds on the internet.. and believe me.. word of mouth is much more effective in there cos Syrian TV is the least watched TV channel since it's government-controlled... thus the integrity of whatever's on it is not that reliable.

just keep in mind that this is a very eventful time in the syrian media.. the international court for Al Hariri, the presidential elections, the parliment elections, the issue with the imprisonment of the democratic activists..
I am sorry to say this... but they are doing the best they could to maintain their interest in this issue cos they have far more important things to worry about now..

keep in mind.. this is not Canada.. when they have problems in there, their problems is SERIOUS.... a life and death kind of problems.

Re: If she hitchhiked...

Ok I really did not know that sattelite is free in Syria and that most of the population have disposable income to afford it along with internet access..my apologies..
If you check Syria News, far more incidents are reported under "hawadeth" than you would ever see in American or Canadian media. Spreading the news as much as possible can help find the missing person. If she was your sister, you would do that..
