Keeping the Untouchables at Bay

Le Temps des médias n°13, Hiver 2009-2010, p. 12-28.

From the 1980s on, television rises as the new flagship of the French resistance against the onslaught of American mass culture, a role held so far and since before even World War II by the film industry.

Results, as shown in this paper, can be surprising. DrapeauFrancais
