France 24, the French CNN?
Since last night, 7:30 UTC, there is a new news channel on the globe and... it's a French one. It's called France 24, and it broadcasts from Paris - well from Issy les Moulineaux, a close suburb of Paris (where I took this photo today). I am eager to see if the news will be treated differently than on CNN, BBC World or Al Jazeera (probably a lot more debates!). Anyway I am very happy - and proud! - that France decided to enter the world "image war"! And the good news is: you can all have a flavour of it for it broadcasts in French, English and soon in Arabic.
