“Why give preference to Facebook, which is worth billions of dollars, when there are many other social networks struggling for recognition?” asks Christine Kelly, spokeswoman for the Conseil Superieur de l’Audiovisuel, a French regulatory agency. “If we allow Facebook and Twitter to be cited on air, it’s opening a Pandora’s box. Other social networks will complain to us saying, ‘why not us?’ “

PALIN‘S MOVIE

Sarah Palin schooled critical press and pundits in the finer points of Paul Revere’s midnight ride: She won, they lost. Now comes more schooling. “The Undefeated,” a feature film about the former Alaska governor’s life debuts later this month in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada. Early reviews of the film are most telling:

“When the credits rolled at the end of the pre-screening of ‘The Undefeated’ my first thought was this: Why didn’t Hillary’s advisors think of this? … I am quite certain that a whole lot of reasonable voters in between will be surprised by what they see.” (Amy Siskind, the Huffington Post)

Sarah Palin is either running for President or she should be: That’s the takeaway.” (Jan Crawford, CBS News political correspondent).

“This is a moving documentary about someone who has risen to great heights all on her own merits unlike most politicians, who have family connections in one way or another. Gov. Palin, like her role model, President Reagan, came from humble beginnings.” (LaDonna Hale Curzon, host, Sarah Palin Radio)

“If enough people see the film it could be a real game-changer for Palin’s presidential chances.” (Matt Lewis, columnist, the Daily Caller)
