CNNBRK just couldn’t wait to Tweet out the startling news this morning:
France will not extradite Roman Polanski to the U.S. to face child-sex charges. http://on.cnn.com/b9HxzP
Was France the victim of Anglophone stereotyping here? Did someone at CNN think that only a nation as decadent as France would give a Gallic shrug over the rape/seduction of a 13-year-old?
Or was it just a matter of, “It was one a them furrin places. Say ‘France’; we’re in a hurry here.” Like anybody in this country will notice the difference, right?
