Negative comments about the French

I was told a while back that if you want to get a lot of traffic on the CNNMoney or CNN website, you just need to write a story with a headline that says something negative about France. So here’s my first attempt, “Our protesters are better than France’s.”

From the volume of e-mails I got Thursday afternoon, right after the piece was posted, I’d say my France-baiting was successful, but only moderately so. Nothing like arguing that “Energy independence is a disaster in the making,” that’s for sure.

  1. I like the protest piece on cnn money. You’re right about the better children’s clothes, that’s for sure. But perhaps that wasn’t your main point.
