  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “US papers spar over ‘legitimacy’ of Supreme Court” – below is their description.

    IN THE PRESS – Tuesday, October 27, 2020: Left-wing papers react with bitterness to the inevitable confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett to the US Supreme Court. The New York Times writes that it strains the court’s legitimacy – an argument the conservative Wall Street Journal claims is part of a plot by Democrats to delegitimise the court for their own future benefit. We also look at ongoing protests in Poland over the right to abortion access. Plus, French papers anticipate lockdown measures and Kazakhstan’s tourism office embraces Borat, a character they once found offensive.
