No Mention of China, Cuba, and North Korea

Just when I think Le Monde cannot surprize me any more, the newspaper of reference manages to do so again.

In a long, in-depth (sic) page 2 analysis of the internet debate going on in Tunis, Stéphane Foucart manages to castigate America's dominance of the internet, pointing out its isolation vis-à-vis "the crushing majority of the 176 countries present".

Not once does he mention the fact that dicatatorial governments are dead set against a system that rather enhances freedom of speech than undermines it, let alone that France is, willingly or not, aligned with such régimes...

Thank God for some readers' reactions
