The media coverage of union and Nuit Debout protests in France are evidence that publications and channels now serve only the wealthy and influencial.
Le Point's star columnist Franz-Olivier Giesbert wrote last month: 'France is currently subject to two threats which, though different, are no less dangerous to its integrity: ISIS and the CGT union (Confédération Générale du Travail)... This is just the start. Let us continue the fight against the CGT'. He should be thanked for expressing the true nature of French journalism under political and financial control.
