Vacationing French President Attacks AP Photographers


www.foxnews.com

CONCORD, N.H. — French President Nicolas Sarkozy lost his temper with two American news photographers covering his vacation Sunday, jumping onto their boat and scolding them loudly in French.

The confrontation came Sunday afternoon as Sarkozy and companions were headed for open water in a boat on Lake Winnipesaukee when he spotted Associated Press photographer Jim Cole and freelancer Vince DeWitt aboard Cole's boat, which was outside a buoy barrier monitored by the New Hampshire Marine Patrol.

Hmm, the President of France jumps from his boat into the journalist's boat, takes their camera and starts shouting at them in French!

This must have been a humorous scene, and probably quite surprising to the photographers!

You know, I don't really like Sarko's sociopolitical position, but I have to say,
the guy's cool in my book for this.


I may believe in freedom of the press, but I also believe in privacy and the media
infringes on politicians and celebrities freedoms far to much.

The French should be careful when the go aboard boats that they do not own.

Anyone remember Rainbow Warrior?

The Camera dude should've knocked him on his derriere for tresspassing!

It also had to come as a big surprise to the Secret Service agents and his own agents.

If reported just as it happened it also show we might want to think twice when discussing issues with him because he obviously is a hot head.
