A Media Frenzy
There is a full-page account at the Daily Mail replete with photos of Dominique Strauss-Kahn, his wife, attorneys, and even a view of the prison where he is spending the night.
Discrepancies are maddening in cases like this. For example, in my previous post, based on the French account in l'Express, it states that he had NOT left his phone or any personal effects behind. However, the Daily Mail says that the phone was left behind. Several other sources, including the original New York Times report and American Thinker, corroborate this point. Also, l'Express stated that the chamber maid was from Ghana, while the Daily Mail says she is from Guinea. I am sorry about these discrepancies, but when there is such a deluge of articles, especially about a celebrity's sex life, it is a wonder we get anything right.
Another unforgivable error on the part of the Daily Mail is to refer to "Michael Debré" as the deputy who denounced Strauss-Kahn, when in fact it was Bernard Debré who penned the open letter to DSK that I posted here.
The biggest discrepancy is the the use of the word "conservative" to describe Nicolas Sarkozy. This has been a major impediment to understanding the French crisis, ever since Sarkozy won the presidency in 2007. The world generally regards him as a conservative, and nothing anyone says can change that blind refusal to see him for what he is.
Anyway, you must browse this page, even if there are inaccuracies. There is plenty of background information on him, plus links to more articles than you'll ever be able to digest.
