France 2 criticized

World Brief

Pubcaster France 2 has had its knuckles rapped by the French broadcasting watchdog for being too pro-government.

In the past quarter, the government’s viewpoint took up 49.9% of the airtime occupied by politicians, while the opposition’s voice was heard 29.3% of the time, according to the Conseil Superieur de l’Audiovisuel.

France 2 blamed the imbalance on interviews with government officials during the war in Iraq and the strikes by French workers, but said it had achieved a better balance during July.
