France’s media bias tries to hide Le Pen momentum

Eric DuhaimeRebel Commentator

Since I arrived in France to report on the presidential election, it's been clear to me that there is a lot of grassroots support for Marine le Pen. However, if you looked only at the way the nation's newspapers are covering this historic vote, you'd never know it:

Eric, did you cover any of the riots following the first round of elections? Merci.

Keith Barnes—Nigel can’t give a speech for LePen as he doesn’t speak French.

Globalism vs Nationalism. It is the same fight around the globe. The media is a whore.

I sure hope you are correct Don MacDonald.

DON MACDONALD 7 hr ago—-Your post has taken me out of my depression . If yours numbers are correct Le Pen will win. What worries me is you seem to be the only one with these numbers;
especially where you say that " there were 11 candidates that were right of center." If they are right of center, Le Pen should get almost all there votes as that is what she is.
It should be an exciting 2 weeks, and could change the Western World.

‘Scuse me Eric, but isn’t this the same press who said that a truck carried off a terror attack?

Repeat of the globalist fixing in the Trump election – Fixed polls, MSM deception and manipulative narratives – same sick undermining of populist democracy by dissolute leftists.

Marine Le Pen needs to invite Nigal Farage to give a speech for her. Look what he did for Prez Trump.

It is sad to see that the French MSM press has become homogenized in the same way that the MSM of the anglosphere has.

In the month of March, 165 attacks , 998 kills , the religion of death takes their toll
In a few days the stats for this month

I have a feeling that the shiney pony will get in ; the French will go to their “safe place” and then between then and the German election there will be a massive terrorist attack, bigger than 911 , THEN you’re going to see BIGLY changes

Like others commenters said , this is pretty much the same as Trump and Brexit. The MSM still values themselves as gods that others bow down to . Hope she wins big and they finally let it sink in that they were supposed to report the news , not make it.

This smacks of Brexit and Trump all over again. The media was out to lunch on those two cases and they’re out to lunch here. There were 11 candidates that were right of centre . La Pen garnered 25% of the vote and the others shared 50% of the rest of the vote. Who in their right mind thinks Macron is going to beat La Pen for those 50% right of centre votes. Just like Brexit and Trump , the mainstream media is backing a loser. Trump rallies were constantly over capacity and at Clinton’s rallies they were bussing in college students to fill the seats. The media ignored this and continued to project Clinton as the winner. Today the EU, Wall St., and President of France are backing Macron – that’s the kiss of death.

The MSM have been bought and paid for by the UN, using our own money. The UN is evil, and so are most governments now.

It’s sick that the media controls who runs the countries. Go, Go, Le Pen, prove them wrong. My prayers are with you and the French Nationals.
commented 2017-04-24 16:15:37 -0400
Thank you Eric, you nailed it!
I hope LePen is victorious on May 7th.
Harely McCartney, I was thinking the same thing as Eric was reading the headlines of today’s newspapers.

I hope le Pen wins. This sounds a lot like the US election.
