Off the mark

A comment on french TV

Although I said I would not be writing whilst I was away, I could not help but pick up an edition of Le Monde before I took off and find the most interesting article! A while back I had written an article about the use of media by politicians and the importance that existed in this relation. Be it hidden or not, there is a definite link between the image that is portrayed of politicians and their popularity. In my opinion, they subtly use TV and other forms of media to their advantage, through personal links that they have. I particularly feel that Nicolas Sarkozy for example, who loves being in the spotlight, has managed to manipulate the media to his advantage. This is difficult to prove however…So imagine my surprise when I came upon the article in Le Monde!
