The truth hurts


Contrary to predictions by Pajamas Medias’ Nidra Poller and others, Philippe Karsenty, founder of Media Ratings, has been found liable and fined for “insulting? Charles Enderlin and France2 in the matter of the controversial Mohammed Al Dura video. This video, produced by Enderlin and promulgated by France 2, has been deemed a fake and called the Father of All Fauxtography. This was barely disputed at the trial and yet Karsenty was still found liable for saying so.

One is left wondering how anything, even the admissio of the Al-Dura video being fake, could actually be “insulting” to a media company owned by the French state. Are there still people who expect better?
