Ahhh those French Elections

Tara has written up a surprising post on press freedom in France, linking to this Reporters without Borders advertisement that claims France occupies 35th position in a ranking of 168 countries when it comes to freedom of the press.

Vive la Revolution ...

If you read on down through her blog, you will find another post on the situation in Darfur ...

Important reading if anything is to change there.

Thanks for the nod, Di. It's just shocking that press freedom in France is so restricted. And that a very strange "elitist" rally - a la Bush - elicited such strange statements from Monsieur Sarkozy. The election might have a very different outcome if the "back stories" were allowed to filter through to the general populace.
