Les journalistes français ont tendance à mélanger faits et commentaire, et sont trop enclins à raconter la misère du monde

In his book Are French Journalists That Bad?, François Dufour answers oui, stating that (in the words of Xavier Ternisien's book review)
French journalists tend to mix facts and commentary, are too urbane [trop parisiens], too occupied in copying each other, and too inclined to talk incessantly about misery on the planet.
If "political opinions predominate over facts", the problem comes from the fact that they are too far to the left:
One quarter on the far left, one half on the left, one quarter in the center and on the right
