C'est le CNN contradictoire

The Agence Française de Presse is reporting that the international French news channel France 24 will start broadcasting worldwide in both English and French in an attempt to offer a "contradictory" view to those offered by the "Anglo-Saxon" CNN and the BBC. ("French news channel to challenge 'Anglo-Saxon' CNN, BBC").

I love it when the French lump us and the Brits together as "Anglo-Saxons". It makes me want to grab my horned helmet and defend the great hall from Grendel the troll.

However, if anyone out there is qualified to offer contradictory opinions, it is the French. It just has to hurt that they feel forced to do this with an English broadcast.
