Obadah al-Kaddri
He was described as: "A truth teller on the Syrian airwaves" Moderates are under attack in Syria. They have been targets of both the Syrian government and hard-line Islamist fighters. The Syrian voices calling for democracy and human rights have been edged out on the ground — but not on the airwaves, as Obadah al-Kaddri has shown. His radio station, al-Watan, is part of a parallel press free of censorship. His journalists inside Syria risk death to tell their stories. In doing so, they have helped reshape a media space that was long limited to the ruling Baath Party line. There are now more than 200 media startups in Syria — a flowering of self-expression, but also of competing narratives, with each camp framing the news within its version of reality. In al-Kaddri s Syria, the fiercest battles are being fought over the truth.
