Media reform in France with Un Bout des Médias

Romary Daval discusses media reform in France. Daval is General Secretary of Un Bout des Médias (“a purpose for the media” in French), and a member of the Society of Friends of Mediacités, a nonprofit investigative journalism organization. Un Bout des Médias works in France to increase diversity in media and  the freedom of journalists to disseminate what they think is important.

Un Bout des Médias was founded by Julia Cagé, an expert on the impact of the media on political economy in France and worldwide. Cagé is an associate professor of economics at Sciences Po, a leading political science university in France. In 2015 she published a book “Saving the Media” in French, which proposes “Nonprofit Media Organizations” which put journalists rather than investors in charge of editorial policies.
