Extract from the article in question:
A first observation: FranceSoir has been bankrupt since 2019, they no longer have an employee but they continue (certainly voluntarily by former employees?) to feed their site. Articles often go against Mass Media ...
France-Soir is a former French general daily newspaper created in 1944 which reached its peak in the 1950s. It ceased to be published in paper version in 2011, then reappeared in digital version in 2013. The site continues to publish content even after all of its journalists were fired for economic reasons in 2019.
The facts then: FranceSoir writes articles that do not go in the direction of the official versions ...
Already in June ... FranceSoir took part in the Covid crisis and took a slap from NewsGuard https://www.newsguardtech.com/wp-conten ... sion-1.pdf
In June 2020, NewsGuard downgraded the France-Soir media, in particular for having published “unfounded allegations of the COVID-19 pandemic” 48. In response, Xavier Azalbert publishes an article titled: "NewsGuard a site that practices selective and targeted disinformation for commercial purposes?" ". An announcement from France-Soir at the end of July 2020 on the epidemic in Mayenne is also contradicted by the CheckNews service of Liberation; the “volunteer” author of the France-Soir column admits his mistake.
I haven't found the article in question so I would have a hard time analyzing this case, but here is the reaction: http://www.francesoir.fr/societe-econom ... ion-ciblee
As if poverty, the absence of money, of the need for results, of economic pressure ... made it possible to speak more freely ...(well, how good this idea is ... )
Or has FranceSoir shifted to the dark side? That of the "great conspiracy" ... in order to comb the most lost in our society?
But for what purpose? If not that of discrediting oneself and ending up dying for good? And sorry but the quality of their analyzes does not allow AMHA to reach the lost ones (or else it is that we are a lot to be lost ... )
There you have it, the debate on the independence of the media and their relationship to money and power is open ... and don't call me a conspirator just because I asked this question! That would be very low on your part!
ps: I would like to know what NewsGuard thinks of this forum !
