The mods can speak to the official part. As to the recommended attitude, I would recommend not discussing it. Or, failing that (as it's sometimes hard to ignore for sure), at least do not discuss it whilst making any mention of the hot-button word combination "french media" (or "francophone media", etc). I think we all have our opinions about which specific media members are more susceptible to idiocy/sensationalism than others. But it's probably best not to generalize and if we want to discuss any item of idiocy/sensationalism (and we usually do), then it's best to name the mediot in question specifically, and tackle his failings individually, rather than to go with the generalizations.
