Napoleon 3 and the newspapers and the radicals

The more I read, the more I understand that Napoleon 3 was obsessed with Bismarck.  And with his own uncle, which is understandable.

Lots of info today and speculation just flowed.  By 1869, though, France was a fermenting vat of different kinds of politics.  I do try to put myself in Napoleon's head.  Tomorrow or Thursday I should be getting to Sedan.  I need to read over my other materials.  I might have already done this.  But hey, there would be a first - the same material covered from a different point of view, with the same narrator!
