Scooping the Times

I note that today’s New York Times has an article on the recent upsurge in Neonazi attacks in France, focusing on Alsace-Lorraine and the simultaneously anti-Semitic and anti-immigrant character of these movements. This was covered a couple days ago here on AFOE.

Does someone at the Times read us? Probably not. I suspect they got it from Libé. But I do take back my disgust at seeing the last attack on a Jewish cemetery in France linked exclusively to Muslim immigrants in the anglophone press. Cudos to the Times for being something other than the New Pravda for once.
