    Dear Anderson: Thank you very much for trying to shed some light on the tragic events unfolding in Syria. I am appalled by the apathy and silence of the world. You are a glaring exception. Please keep on the good work. Freedom-thirsty Syrians are grateful for you

    Journalism has truly died because of your reporting on Syria... All of your comments are very biased. You fail to mention the tens of thousands of demonstrations FOR the government in Damascus as well as other countries of Aleppo and Tartus. Its funny how low CNN can go by trusting unreliable videos on youtube. It seems that the U.S. wants democracy in Syria simply because the country is an enemy, but supports the monarchy in Bahrain. Hypocrisy indeed... You say you have reliable sources in Syria, but how can you really trust these sources without going into the country and finding out what is going on? The United States has a bad habit of getting involved in other countries businesses, but dislikes it when other countries try to tell us what to do... Propaganda once again is in the news... And you say you are "fair and balanced"

    Seriously, is that all what you can come up with?
    Why didn't you mention the millions of people that want President Bashar Al-Assad as their president and that gathered all around the country for his support. Many news media only choose articles that can suits them and their purpose.
    As for the videos that you showed about the protests and the deaths of people. There is a Syrian channel called Addounia that found out that all of these videos are being acted out by the opposers to show the government and the army as cruel and violent.
    What about the terrorists that is killing the army and the police that were also caught on tape? why didn't you show these videos?
    If you want to be professional then do your job and reasearch a little bit to find the real truth.
    I'm surprised that there aren't any other comments or did you also choose not to show them?

    Anderson reporting is outstanding. Those people simply risk their lives every day, and some do end up killed, just to have a chance of freedom. It is unbelievable who they can find the strength to do so against ruthless tanks! Dedicating a few minutes of the program to show show the naked truth and contrast reality with the syrian regime's primitive claims is stunning! The Assads think that they can intimidate everyone in the entire world away from the truth. CNN should be proud to have Mr. Cooper in its line up. Thank you, Anderson.
