Diversity of TV programming

Setting aside any comment regarding whether one agrees or not with the French attitudes regarding various topics [foreign policy, economic regulation, etc.], you can't argue the fact that the French population has easier access to greater diversity of thought than does the American population. These snapshots show just a handful of the channels that were available on the cable system in the apartment we rented. Programming from Italy, Algeria, China, Russia, Morocco, Poland, Qatar, Germany, etc., etc., etc. Rather different than CNN, FoxNews and MSNBC.
