French Newsroom Goes on Strike After Appointment of “Far-Right” Editor

From a New York Times story by Liz Alderman headlined “A French Newsroom on Strike After Appointment of ‘Far-Right’ Editor”:

In its 75-year history, Le Journal du Dimanche, France’s leading Sunday newspaper, has almost never missed publication. But its operations ground to a halt this week after an editor with a far-right track record was abruptly appointed just ahead of a takeover of the paper by the French billionaire Vincent Bolloré, prompting a mass walkout by journalists and igniting a firestorm in French media and political circles.
