Once again, using a TABLOID as a legitimate news source.

What does that have to do with the topic?  And who determines what is a legitimate source of news?  And what does pre-World War II views have to do with legitimately of their reporting today?

 

Is there a rebuttal to their reporting from other news sources that would prove them wrong?

 

Is there a list of legitimate news sources that is approved for use here for information?

Once again, using a TABLOID as a legitimate news source.

 

Let us not forget that this very same TABLOID supported Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler during the Pre-World War II years. The head of the organization even said, at the time, "The MINOR MISDEEDS of individual NAZIS would be submerged by the immense benefits the new regime is already bestowing upon Germany".

 

There are so many legitimate news sources available throughout the world; I am not sure why TABLOIDS are used, at all, as a source.

Latest attack in Paris

Message 5 of 5 (200 Views)

City under siege: Latest attack in Paris would be the sixth terrorist strike on the French capital in three years

  • Most recently, on March 18, a convicted criminal was shot dead at Orly Airport
  • By far the most deadly strike was in November 13, 2015, when 130 people died
  • On January 7, two brothers killed 11 inside headquarters of satirical magazine

French police have said tonight's attack was 'probably a terrorist act', and if so it would be at least the sixth terror strike on Paris in three years.  

 

Most recently, on March 18, a convicted criminal with links to radical Islam shouted 'I am here to die for Allah, there will be deaths' seconds before he was shot dead during an attack at Orly airport.

And a month earlier, on February 3, a man was shot five times outside the Louvre museum in the heart of Paris after attempting to storm the historic art gallery.

Last year, on June 13, two police officers were murdered in their home just outside Paris in front of their 8-year-old son in an attack claimed by Islamic State.

 

By far the most deadly strike came on November 13, 2015, when ISIS militants killed 130 people in France's worst atrocity since World War II.

 

A series of suicide bomb and shooting attacks were launched on crowded sites in central Paris, as well as the northern suburb of Saint-Denis.

 

The majority of those killed were in the Bataclan concert hall where hostages were taken.
