Are the AP and CBS rooting for Bashir Assad to prevail?

Does anything jump out at you like it did to me in this little blurb?

(CBS/AP) BEIRUT, Lebanon — Two "terrorist explosions" struck security targets in the Syrian capital Saturday morning, killing at least 27 people and wounding 140, the state-run news agency said.

SANA said many of the dead were civilians, including children and senior citizens.

When was the last time you remember the AP or cBS calling anyone a terrorist?
Even if the original story said that?

Then we have this graphic (well less glossed over than the results of PLO bombs...)description of the results of 'freedom fighters'-
SANA posted gruesome photographs of the scene, with mangled and charred corpses, bloodstains on the streets and twisted steel.

"All our windows and doors are blown out," said Majed Seibiyah, 29, who lives in the area. "I was sleeping when I heard a sound like an earthquake. I didn't grasp what was happening until I hear screaming in the street.

BUT- all is not lost in the peace process. Koffi Anan is there showing the same kind of leadership that that made the UN the epitome of useless pandering.  ...And both sides have the same opinion of him :-D

Diplomatic efforts to solve the crisis have so far brought no result. But U.N. envoy Kofi Annan told the Security Council in a briefing Friday that he would return to Damascus even though his recent talks with Assad saw no progress in attempts to cobble together peace negotiations between the two sides.
After the confidential briefing via videolink, Annan told reporters in Geneva that he urged the council "to speak with one voice as we try to resolve the crisis in Syria." Russia and China have blocked U.N. action against Assad's regime.
"The first objective is for all of us to end the violence and human rights abuses and the killings and get unimpeded access for humanitarian access to the needy, and of course the all-important issue of political process that will lead to a democratic Syria," Annan said.
