VALUES - INCONVENIENT TRUTH
Apparently the French media is no more interested in admitting a mistake, especially when such admission runs counter to its ideology than the American media. This is the conclusion which can be reached from its response to the the unfortunate story of Mohamed Al Dura -
"That's what is happening in France as the Mohamed Al Dura scandal finally hits the mainstream press. French public television channel France 2 is suing, or threatening to sue, anyone who questions the integrity of its journalists. And questioning the truth of one of the most unsubstantiated news reports ever to hit the screen is considered questioning the integrity of the journalists who produced it. Even if the whole thing was a fake. It was reported, so it has to be true. Something like the Koran. You don't question it".
