France's broadcasting watchdog—the Conseil Supérieur de l'Audiovisuel, or CSA—called on the country's television channels to use restraint in showing footage of Mr. Strauss-Kahn in handcuffs, reminding networks that French law prohibits them from airing images of people in handcuffs, or otherwise restrained, before they have been convicted by a court.
"We can't cover the DSK story like a French story for the simple reason it is happening in the U.S.," Mr. Ravanello said, referring to Mr. Strauss-Kahn by his widely used initials. "The images we saw are brutal indeed, but that's because of the nature of the U.S. judiciary."
I don't know about the rest of you, but I haven't seen anything brutal in nature having to do with the handling of this man. I presume he is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. I can even acknowledge that there are many possibilities to this story that do not shine him in a criminal light. Does this make anyone long for a media that has such restrictions as to what images they can show and how they can report a story?
