Was Dominique Strauss-Kahn Framed?

It’s a question for the courts more than the media, but French socialist circles are abuzz with the idea that Dominique Strauss-Kahn was framed.

I think it fair to say that French socialists are more worried about the political implications of tIhe DSK arrest and upcoming trial than about who did what to whom. If your leading presidential candidate, the presumptive leader of your political party, gets caught doing something vile, vulgar, reprehensible, and criminal, you have a serious political problem.

One feels their pain.

And yet, what could possibly justify the attitude of reporters on the American network known as NBC? Why would Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira give credibility to the French socialist party line? Why would they use the occasion of a horrific crime to slander the president of France, Nicholas Sarkozy?
Are they reporting the facts or laying the groundwork for an alternative narrative, one that would restore the electoral fortunes of the French socialist party and sink the current president, Mr. Sarkozy?
In truth, I never watch NBC News programs myself. So I can only link you to the documentation provided by the Media Research Center. Link here.
