It should therefore that the press and major broadcast media uncritically accept a turnkey script sold by a principality transformed into an enchanted island. Should be the name of an unwritten rule, which means you do not touch the myth (hardened) to a realm of operetta, the print and broadcast media accept this story without any distance and more little critical. It does not touch the rock.
The above quote is from the L'Express journalist, Renaud Revel, who broke the Albert and Charlene relationship problems story. this man is speaking to my soul he mentions everything that has bothered me so much about the media coverage of this fake Albert and Charlene love story! Thank you Mr. Revel!
Renaud Revel has written an excellent article in his blog about his motive for ultimately publishing the story. He actually was quite hesitant about publishing the story and he discussed the the story at length with L'Express editor, Christophe Barbier. Revel questions the French media, especially the public TV stations TF1 and France 2 nonobjective reporting of Albert and Charlene as if they are untouchable icons and he discusses his dislike of he staggering glorification of this couple without questioning anything that they say.
I think Albert would have been better leader if he was faced with objective press and perhaps Charlene might have improved herself in other manners besides plastic surgery and clothing if she also was faced with objective media coverage. Actually, probably not for Charlene, If Charlene was faced with objective press, all of her lies would have been exposed and she would have been long gone from Monaco about four years ago.
Please, please read the article. It is now best article about this couple and this saga - it now beats out the New York times article written by Elaine Sciolino. This thread is not only dedicated to your opinions about Renaud Revel's comments, but how do you feel in general about the press coverage of this couple. This thread is not a repeat of the "media problems with the wedding" thread or about specific claims in the L'Express article. Rather, you can opine about any short or long term effect of the L"Express revelation. Is this good or bad for Albert, Charlene, the relationship, and/or Monaco? This thread goes beyond the "PR Machine" thread that we already has since it is focuses on Monaco's PR initiatives as opposed to the this thread which is the media's covering of this couple.
