The French presidential debate took place on Wednesday, and news outlets have overwhelmingly reported that Emmanuel Macron beat out the far-right National Front candidate Marine Le Pen. Morrissey shared a statement that suggests otherwise. His keyboardist, Gustavo Manzur, posted Morrissey’s thoughts on the debate to his personal Facebook page:
“Last night Marine Le Pen easily won the French Election debate.
Today both the BBC and CNN say Macron won the debate.
This is precisely the reason why mainstream news media outlets cannot be trusted to tell the truth. Their private agendas are more important than facts, reality, or their duty to the people.”
