Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
and like your interpretation, but my (long and extensive) experience of reading English language media commentary on France does not incline me to  believe your intepretation is more correct than mine.

You have no idea how extensive AND intensive the French-bashing is in the media until you actually start noting things down, which is a dreary thing to do.

Maybe one day I will do it, just for the sake of demonstration.
