French President Emmanuel Macron interviewed with The New York Times, where he accused the English-language media of being biased against France. Macron says that his country is painted as racist and legitimizes the extremist violence it is facing.

“When France was attacked five years ago, every nation in the world supported us,” Macron said.

The president’s statement refers to a 2015 incident in France which saw a shooting at the headquarters of satirical weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo after it published a satirical depiction of the Prophet Muhammad.

“So when I see, in that context, several newspapers which I believe are from countries that share our values — journalists who write in a country that is the heir to the Enlightenment and the French Revolution — when I see them legitimizing this violence, and saying that the heart of the problem is that France is racist and Islamophobic, then I say the founding principles have been lost,” Macron said.

In October, French teacher Samuel Paty was beheaded after showing his class the satirical Charlie Hebdo cartoons. After Marcon defended the teachers’ actions citing free speech, it caused protests to break out in Muslim-majority countries.

At the end of his interview, Macron claims that foreign media, including from the United States, fail to understand France’s secularism.

The former strategist for Donald Trump is reacting to what many in the news media are discussing, the FBI raiding Mar-a-Lago. Steve Bannon went on Alex Jones’ InfoWars, where he slammed the department. 

Furthermore, Bannon stated that the search of Trump’s Florida home could be a precursor as to what the FBI or those within the government are plotting against the former president. 

“I do not think it’s beyond this administrative state and their deep state apparatus to actually try to work on the assassination of President Trump,” Bannon said, per Mediaite

“Everything’s on the table. I think his security should be at the highest it’s ever been, and honestly … I think he should have flown down to Mar a Lago this morning, walked out at noon today, and said, ‘Hey, I’m running for President of the United States. Suck on that.’”

Bannon also used the opportunity on Jones’ show to dispel any rumors of Trump running for president in 2024 after Trump released on Truth Social that strongly suggested a new run for office. 

Also, the former Trump aide continued by saying, “they’re trying to liquidate InfoWars,” referencing the nearly $50 million Jones has to pay the Sandy Hook parents who sued him for defamation.

Bill O’Reilly: ‘Unholy Alliance’ Between Liberal Media and Government Officials

A recent effort by citizens to recall Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon is O’Reilly’s point of contention.

On Monday’s episode of The O’Reilly Update podcast, during the “message of the day” Bill O’Reilly focused on the ties between liberal media outlets and government officials.

“There are unholy alliances in play,” O’Reilly said. “That is press agencies advancing the fortunes of leftists seeking power, while at the same time ignoring injustice. Let’s focus on a very vivid example: the Los Angeles Times. Like its namesake in New York, the LA Times is a liberal outfit. Nothing wrong with that, if an attempt is made to provide straightforward news coverage. Unfortunately, that’s not what’s happening. While crime is devastating LA and other California cities, the newspaper is desperately trying to save progressive law enforcement agents who are directly responsible for the death and destruction.”

A recent effort by citizens to recall Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon is O’Reilly’s point of contention. He claims homicides are up 94% since Gascon took office in December of 2020. Shootings are up 54%, and O’Reilly pins those numbers on Gascon’s policy of criminal justice reform. O’Reilly used recent editorials from the California newspaper saying “the notion that a D.A. can make crime rise or fall over a period is absurd” as an example of this “unholy alliance”.

“What is absurd is that newspaper not processing the violent crime it reports on every day. That’s absurd,” O’Reilly argued. “The truth is the progressive movement believes the American criminal justice system is racist and wants to destroy it. The LA Times is part of the progressive movement. It has allied itself with that. And so, death in the streets of blighted neighborhoods really doesn’t matter for the greater good of criminal justice reform.”
