Crooks

EU Referendum has "covered the remarkable story of 47 French politicians, 27 of whom can be described as senior, being found guilty of financial malpractice and receiving suspended sentences as well as rather high fines (which they may or may not pay). Let me repeat that: 27 senior politicians were found guilty. Not simply accused but actually found guilty after an exhaustive and exhausting trial.

Furthermore, it was made clear during the proceedings that one man was missing from the line-up of defendants: President Chirac, l'escroc himself.

Big news, one would have said. Well, one would have been wrong. The story was covered somewhat half-heartedly on the day and forgotten since then by most of the media.

Compare that with the acres of newsprint devoted to the indictment of Lewis Libby, former assistant to Vice-President Cheney and a man of whom few have heard in the United States until this week, never mind in Britain.

Enough said about the MSM - thank goodness for blogs to keep me informed.

Yeh, I quit the local newspaper and change the channel when MSM "news" comes on the TV - it's all just unsubstantial and untrustworthy spin-crap.
