“Reporters Without Borders was created to defend pluralism. Today, it is an enemy of pluralism,” says Robert Ménard, a cofounder and long-time chief of Reporters without Borders, or Reporters sans frontières (RSF).

Ménard is now the mayor of Béziers, a city of some 90,000 inhabitants in southern France, where he was initially elected with the support of Marine Le Pen’s National Rally.

He was reacting to a breakthrough ruling by the Council of State, which is France’s highest administrative court, on Feb. 14. This ruling says that the country’s media authority ARCOM should closely monitor the plurality of views expressed on each TV channel.
