Dominique Strauss-Kahn – The Schmidt assessment

Commnets on DSK by Steffen Schmidt, University Professor of Political Science at Iowa State University.

What is most unacceptable in the allegations of rape by Dominique Strauss-Kahn is the behavior of the French news media. For years they have known of Dominique Strauss-Kahn – DSK’s – peccadillo’s and unacceptable behavior. in fact The Independent of London reported today that it was said in France that you could not trust him around young women. But the oh so haughty French news media looked the other way and they are now outraged, yes OUTRAGED that the US media shows pictures of DSK doing the “perp walk” and that in France that would never be done (with a fine upper class gentleman like this, I assume). Correct, the worthless elitist French media do the dirty work of the elites by ignoring what amount to disturbing and unacceptable allegations about their notables. The real losers in all of this are the French reporters, publishers, and editors. Shame on them!
