New York press shows contempt for IMF chief

The New York papers are continuing to give IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, now in custody on charges of sexual assault, the kind of coverage that would risk landing them in court in the UK for contempt for prejudicing a trial.

It's as if the papers have adopted the persona of the New York detective 'Popeye' Doyle and his hatred of haughty French criminal Alain Charnier (Fernando Rey) in the film The French Connection in their attitude to Strauss-Kahn.
