The Macron 'fake news' report that wasn't

France 24 screen grab

French news channel Cnews has come under fire for airing archive footage of Emmanuel Macron being welcomed by crowds at his summer residence in Le Touquet. Macron was in Le Touquet this week, but there were no welcoming crowds this time. With his approval rating falling, Cnews was accused of purposefully using old footage to present the president in a more flattering light. The freelance journalist responsible has been asked to leave the channel for what was described as a case of "human error".
