A newspaper publishes news. War makes news.
I have to interpret this as an affirmation, by the Sunday Times, that they publish only second- or third-hand material from other newspapers who "immorally" gather news from Syria, or that they just don't talk at all about the civil war in Syria.
Maybe we can conclude, from this, that the Sunday Times simply is not a newspaper.
When you buy a newspaper you do it because you expect to find information, not "moral decisions".
"Embedded journalism" had the final result of making some confuse government press statements with "information".
