Propagande.. c'est quoi?

The corrupt and incompetent M. Jacques Chirac does it again.

Since the free world does not find the French world view... commercial, the government of France has decided to set up its version of Al Jazeera.

Despite a budget less than 10% of CNN it is still tens of millions of Euros out of the pocket of the French tax payer.

Un elephant blanc, peut-etre?

We do have a BBC..

At least the French are independant of their colonies.

Remember they only voted for Chirac because he wasn't Le Pen.

I do think it's great that they've decided to have a parallel broadcast in English. (I wonder which will get the most viewers beyond the shores of France). It must have left the visionaries behind this exercise feeling like they'd lost before they'd even begun.
