It is not surprising that the media is still overwhelmingly siding with Macron and his authoritarian regime, they are the ones that helped him reach his position with their unabashed adulation and outright pro Macron propaganda which they have been pumping during and after his elections.
As a result Macron's goverment actually denies any documented police brutality ever took place against French protesters.
Interior Minister Christophe Castaner this week brushed aside criticism of the force. "I have never seen a policeman or gendarme attacking a protester", he declared despite and unending stream of photos and iveos depicting French police brutalising French protetsres.
The EU is also silent about the ongoing barbarity perpetuated by Macron against his own people, because of their support for him and his rabid pro EU stances.
While other countries or politicians which are critical of the EU and its policies are attacked by the EU ( countries like Italy, Poland and Hungary) for doing basically anything, the EU will never ever condemn Macron and his documented brutality and deliberate attacks on French protesters, which happpen to be EU citizens as well.
If the media had done its job and actually covered the Yellow Vests protests in a proper and honest way which showed the reality and brutality of French government towards the protesters there would have been a huge outcry and pressure would be put on Macron to stop his authoritarian crackdown.
But because this never happened, the French government can go as far as to say that it “"have never seen a policeman or gendarme attacking a protester."
