Do stories like this represent any kind of honest journalism?
UPDATE: The New York Times Company's flagship paper does exactly the same type of non-reporting as the IHT on the French riot in their story here.
UPDATE2: The Boston Globe's AP story today dares to dance a bit closer to the facts:
...the violence was a reminder of the tensions that drove weeks of unrest in 2005 in poor neighborhoods with large minority populations. Investigators were still trying to piece together what happened in the Sunday afternoon crash in Villiers-le-Bel, a town of public housing blocks that is home to a mix of Arab, black, and white residents in the French capital's northern suburbs.No New York Times company report is now using the "I-word" to describe this violence.
