Newsclick is posting this video titled Madaya: What The Media isn't telling you. This video exposes the entire the fraud of the mainstream media, and tells us of the actual state of media as told by its inhabitants. The people of Madaya tell us how the rebels -- from al-Nusra and Ahrar Sham are stealing the aid that is coming in and selling at black market rates.
