“Liberté, Egalité, Actualité”




Remember when cable news was news and it covered the world.

Well, here is an example of a news channel that is more news and less opinion ... and it covers the world from a unique perspective that is devoid of the partisan one-upmanship we get with domestic versions.

It is France24 and it is one of three channels streamed by the Paris-based public television entity France Médias Monde. Here is the link to the wiki for the effort which began in 2006 to present news worldwide as an alternative to CNN, BBC and Al Jazzera.

This is actually a good news station for youth if you're interested in their gaining a world perspective in terms of geography.  For instance in the weather segment it displays a world map with temperature reports from major cities.  On a tech piece on the production of cell phones in Maylaysia, the report presented the periodic table of elements to explain the parts in the phone and their origin of the material.

It just seemed like more information and less bs.

Its tagline throughout most of the world is "Liberte:Egalite:Actualite" ... but in UK it is: The French don’t always see the world as we do. Unfortunately.  Get their point of view, in English.

Particularly unique about this 'channel' ... it is the closest thing to a 24 hour news feed available over the air.  It can be found, I want to say, on digital channel 26-4 and seems to have a pretty good signal.

Interesting, I'll have to try it if I can find the time.   I gave up on the "normal" channels long ago, they not so much news as entertainment and drama.

 

At least when I read news, I just quit and go to the next piece rather than having to listen to the drivel.

Anything involving facts that don't meet the standars of alternative facts, Pubby, cannot be understood by conservative thinking people!

 

You remember, of course, the Ivy League truths you once posted! The only responses you got were from the people who like alternative facts, which are not in sync with the Ivy Leagues facts!

What is missing from that observation is that most good people do mostly good things most of the time but are discouraged because of those who emphasize the failures to the exclusion of all else.

I suppose there are some good conservatives. Nevertheless, there are a lot of people, who are bad, conservastive or not, Pubby!

 

War can't even change their way of thinking! 

 

There are a lot of people who would still put Kunta Kinte, and his half white grandson (Chicken George), under the bus for being of a different opinion.  

 

Indeed, perfection eludes us all, like beautry is skin deep though, ugly can go all the way to the bone. Even good people have to accept the boanie people, and there are a lot of boanie people out there. The numbers of them who refuse to believe Ivy League facts are high numbers.
