“PARIS – Reporter Alain Hertoghe’s book accused the French press of not being objective in its coverage of the U.S.-led war in Iraq (news – web sites). His newspaper fired him.
The book, ‘La Guerre a Outrances’ (The War of Outrages), criticizes the French reporting for continually predicting the war would end badly for the U.S.-led coalition.
‘Readers can’t understand why the Americans won the war,’ Hertoghe said in a telephone interview. ‘The French press wasn’t neutral.’ “
Perhaps they’re taking their queues from the NewYork Times, huh?
