Secret film that must not be seen in France, not even by the courts

An amazing story from France. Telling the truth is defamation.  Some years back, French state TV published heavily edited  "news" film that purported to show a Palestinian boy being killed by Israelis. Philippe Karsenty exposed the deception, based on seeing the whole, uncut, film.

But he was then sued for defamation by the TV channel.  He was acquitted but the French TV channel has appealed the acquittal. 

The French high court has now ruled that the lower court improperly viewed the whole film, and has ordered a retrial.  The journalist who presented the fake footage was the highly regarded Charles Enderlin


Meanwhile Charles’ employer, the state-owned media giant France2, appealed to the highest court, which, despite a strong opinion against from the “Parquet,” (which vigorously defended the value to civil society of allowing such criticisms), ruled that the appeals court had no right to demand the footage, nullified their opinion, and sent the case back to appeals court where it arrives today, same room, same “Palace of Justice” in Paris.

Must not upset Muslims, I guess. Truth be damned.  The French establishment is totally corrupt as far as I can see.

THe left's concept of equality. No doubt they would give an honorable discharge to a straight, gender conforming person who violated federal law by being AWOL.

Actually examining evidence in court is now verboten?

Just… wow…

Without examining evidence, it is impossible to accurately discover truth.

Images of "Lady Justice" are typically blindfolded. This is supposed to represent impartiality on the basis of who the person is, especially their status, group, etc. The scales are to be for weighing evidence. Apparently France is simply removing the scales and gouging her eyes out.
