The South African television show Carte Blanche broadcast an episode on the Syrian civil war. On the show, they interview a Syrian woman who blames Israel for the bloodshed.

Not surprisingly, she works for Syrian National Television and is a supporter of President Assad.

She is obviously just expressing Syrian propaganda. Yet the interviewer never challenges her ridiculous accusation.

Journalists have a responsibility to make sure that the sources they use are credible. In this case, Carte Blanche failed the case.
