Bias by omission

Lovely article gushing over Christine Lagarde by the local branch of Pravda.

What’s missing there? Her conviction for negligence in office with a corrupt businessman perhaps?

Was she connected to Jeffrey Epstein?

Jeffrey Epstein has multiple odd connections. I am curious would this be one of those. :roll:

The guy she was convicted of at the very least turning a blind eye to the activities of was a French businessman, Bernard something.

Even the French medias, which are so proud that a French woman be nominated at the head of the ECB, mention that she had some problems with justice. Just a coincidence, but currently a part of the affair is judged in a court. It is not surprising that when she was judged by a special court, she was really not condemned, as she is a member of the elite. That works like that in France.

He's the Chancellor of the Exchequer and is opposed to a no-deal Brexit.
I could be the catalyst that sparks the revolution
I could be an inmate in a long-term institution
I could dream to wide extremes, I could do or die
I could yawn and be withdrawn and watch the world go by
What a waste...
