    Im not saying thier weak in power but as where they become immature about the comment made by Fox News made that makes them sound weak. as a country if you get mad at someones makes fun of or compare you just gotta move on and stay cool, but retaliation is not the way of proving anyone especially to a news company that just talk on t.v. and radio, like come on grow up and pick on someone else

    I am confused as to why the French are making such a big deal out of an opinion; something everyone has and is entitled too. I’m sure there are people in France who have less than positive opinions about our country, but you don’t see us suing them over it and putting it on the news. Personally I think the French need to get over themselves and worry about things that are more important than what we think of them.

    i agree with you. i understand fox news might of accidentally insulted them but not intended to do so. but they should not get mad because if that happen to America aka “not really going to happen because were the strongest country” then you all ready know they would make the same comment. plus if they get offended from a comment and I’m sorry to say, their country is just weak and need to grow up.#sorrynotsorry anyways they already they know they cant start a war with U.S. because they would of made the worst decision and get themselves killed. #TeamAmerica “BEST WITH THE BEST DIE LIKE THE REST” “AMERICA BACK TO BACK WORLD WAR CHAMPS” YEE YEE MURICA

      Not sure what your main point is other than you think America is the best and France is weak. Just sounds like American arrogance to me. That is exactly what blinds us to respectful and informed freedom of speech.

    I see why people would say that everybody has freedom of speech and everything so France shouldn’t be so excessive and hypocritical and I agree with that. But in this case it’s Fox News that has said these things,a News group who’s famous for making outrageous lies and stating facts that are completely untrue, so I think in they’re case France is doing the right thing and Fox News had it coming.

    I believe that the french are being a bit hypocritical because they are so liberal and they also contributed to Charlie Hebdo and freedom of press yet they sue another nation’s press for dong a news report comparing those two states.

    France, the nation that was overtaken pretty quickly in World War II, I’m not surprised that french officials would have a fit about a little comparison. Every human being should have the right to freedom of speech, it wasn’t slander, it wasn’t bad mouthing, it’s called a comparison. However, generalizing a whole neighborhood full of Muslims is wrong, but it is sad that 69% of french Muslims support ISIS, and that in itself is a cause for worriment.
