All the cool kids were doing it

Apparently France has decided that it didn't have an awful enough "documentary" about the French Revolution to compete with the sterling examples set by the United States (The French Revolution) and Great Britain (Terror! Robespierre and the French Revolution), because this is going to air tomorrow on France 3:

Robespierre : bourreau de la Vendée ? [Robespierre: Executioner of the Vendée?]*

Charming. I am sure it will be a model of unbiased, factual reporting followed by a fair debate in which all points of view that can reasonably claim a basis in truth are equally represented.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go drink myself into a coma.

*Can provide a full translation of the article if anyone needs it.

EDIT: Thanks to zanyofsorrow, we have links!
