from Canal+ (prime time MSM)

"The Guignols generally displays a left-of-center political outlook. While they generally focus on French politics, they occasionally parody international events, often concerning terrorism, including Osama Bin Laden, Iraq conflict and Saddam Hussein, and United States foreign policy in general.

These spoofs on international events are usually presented in an anti-Bush manner, heavily criticizing his foreign policy as brutal and destructive. (The best example may be their famous We Are The World parody entitled We Fuck The World.) They also sometimes mock Canal+ and its staff.

As private life is considered important for French people, references to the USA often include funny lines as they appear obsessed with their politicians private life."
