Hollande's anger with French TV news

The French President has a testy relationship with rolling news channels, in particular after last month's deportation of a Roma schoolgirl. The deportation became a hot topic in the French media.

Elysée spin doctors were not impressed, seeing the episode as deeply disrespectful of the president.
