The French media: sticking up for their own filthy ilk

TF1 news goes over the top in its total support of French terrorist Moussaoui: "during a long exchange, Moussaoui was sharp and clever, and succeeded several times in damaging the witnesses credibility, cross-examining like the most experienced of lawyers." French media coverage has been largely sympathetic to Moussaoui, even though the French media can never admit outright that the guy is 100% French (they always make sure that they get in a mention of his Moroccan roots). Coverage mostly consists of showing his crying mother, who recently stated that her son appeared to be drugged by his American captors, and by repeating incessantly that this poor French citizen is fighting for his life in face of the barbaric American death penalty.
