French Fried: Readers Respond to the Riots
In a wide-ranging Live Online discussion on the French riots yesterday, readers weighed in with some timely questions and comments, including:
From Windsor Mill, Md.: "Fox News has bannered this story as 'Muslim Riots.' Has that been the trend with all of Murdoch's publications? "
From Washington, DC: "Do you sense a number of non-French are gloating a bit at France's misery? France, with a reputation for telling the rest of the world how to live, is suddenly being given advice from all over on how to deal with internal French problems. Do you think this is bugging the French?"
From Chicago: "I've been looking at a number of French news sites from across the political spectrum. It seems to me that the more conservative are taking a more politically-oriented approach to the coverage (Le Monde, for example, seems usually to refer to reassurances and proposals from on high), while leftist papers like Liberation place a good deal of focus on what's actually going on."
For the answers to these and other questions, read the complete transcript.
