Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You have formulated this authoritative opinion based on extensive readings of French media coverage of the Middle East, I imagine?

I'm just trying to point out that there is a whole range of information sources between the NYT and Angry Arab. And some of them are quite good. There are, for example, a fair number of French journalists that speak Arabic; and a fair number of Arab journalists that speak French. There is, in fact, significant cultural interpenetration between France and North Africa, due to a long (and blood-soaked) colonial history. (There is also a high degree of cultural interpenetration with Israel, but it is not all-pervasive in the media).
