Critics accused the agency, which depends largely on the French state for its financial equilibrium, of self-censorship in an attempt to avoid ruffling Mr Hollande’s feathers.
He’s not an idiot because one photo made him look like moron.
He’s an idiot because he actually thinks socialism is a viable economic system.
That’s the gold standard for idiocy.

Poor guy. Everyone takes a bad pic when people are taking pictures of you all the time. Yeah, it happens to some people more than others but, still.
While we’re on the subject, though, take a gander at this one Ann Althouse pulled from the TV broadcast of Kerry’s Meet the Press interview last Sunday.

If I were in the public eye as much as Hollande (or any celebrity or politician) is, I’d make sure to make goofy faces every day for the press. That way, people would get inured to seeing my goofy face, and wouldn’t care anymore.
