FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “‘Macronists in denial’: Libération responds to backlash over Macron-Le Pen front page” – below is their description.

IN THE PRESS – Monday, March 1, 2021: Photos of the weekend’s deadly crackdown in Myanmar dominate many front pages in Europe and Asia. Papers also decry a lack of action following the release of a report implicating the Saudi crown prince in the murder of Saudi journalist and dissident Jamal Khashoggi. In France, Libération responds to backlash from Macron supporters after reporting that some on the left won’t vote for him again, even against far-right leader Marine Le Pen. We also look at a Covid-19 outbreak on France’s national rugby team and the latest inappropriate Zoom call!
