Gareth Cartman liveblogs the launch of France 24, the Gallic competitor to CNN, the BBC, and Al Jazeera, vying for a global crown: “9:06 – Over to the French channel now, and a fabulous wave of hair is reading the news. I mean, wow, this woman has HAIR. Really, you have to see this.” If only we could.
I turned down an invitation from the channel to fly over for the launch to blog it. Now you know the price of integrity — or stupidity.
