Nidra's column

I hate to sound like a PJM promo guy – well, that’s part of my job – but there are, increasingly, more interesting things to promote. Nidra Poller has begun her weekly column from Paris – Frogs to Princes – for us. She’s a novelist and it shows in the level of the writing. She’s starting at the very moment of something quite interesting in Paris – the trial of several people who have criticized the government television channel (France 2) for the promulgation of the Al Doura video or, as we call it at PJM, The Father of All Fauxtography.
