Newspaper industry: What outlook for the French press?
Date created :
This week, we examine the state of the French press, which like the print media in many other countries has seen circulation figures fall sharply. We look at how the main players in France's printed press are doing in these increasingly uncertain times.
Also, we introduce you to some of the owners of the country's best-known newspapers. Some fear that mergers, acquisitions and the involvement of shareholders from the world of business pose a threat to editorial independence.
Finally, we examine how some specialised publications have managed to buck the industry's downward trend. We take you to see a foodie magazine which seems to have cooked up the perfect recipe for success.
