The CNN coverage of the Paris attacks is obscene. In a half-hour segment last time while I was at the gym, their personable journalists played the latest home-video of the shooting over and over, without once engaging in a serious debate about anything. And there are several intelligent debates going on here, not least in the Comments/Reactions section of Le Monde. What seems to slip under the radar of US media is the long history of European anti-clericalism.
