'It's Disgusting' -- French Outrage At Russian TV Report

There is outrage in France over a Russian state television report that apparently manipulated interviews and footage in a report about a wave of French labor protests. People interviewed by Rossiya 24 said they were misquoted and their words twisted, to give the impression they opposed the European Union and immigrants. The French satirical news program Le Petit Journal exposed the distorted coverage by Russia's largest TV network and challenged its claim that many in France were calling for closer ties with Moscow.
