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.

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.FRANCE 24 English YouTube Channel
