‘Swiss poll’ predicting radical upset in French election disavowed by paper

The Geneva-based Swiss newspaper Le Temps has issued a denial via one of its editors on Twitter, saying that a poll conducted in its name was not in reality ordered by the paper at all. The results of the bogus poll on the French presidential election showed that Emmanuel Macron would not make it into the second round and that far-right candidate Eric Zemmour would comfortably defeat far-left candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon in the run-off. All other polls show Macron being narrowly re-elected. We tell you more in this edition of Truth or Fake.
