Les jours noirs d’un quotidien (Libération)

Libération employees vs stockholders (via management). Beyond the usual problems for newspapers there seems to be another issue: stockholders are “the enemy” as they represent “capitalism” (the bogeyman in France, as “socialism” is the bogeyman in the US)… Which loses sight of who the actual audience is: readers willing to pay vs journalists’ circle of friends and family (Paris centric? Artistic left?)…

Stockholders’ proposal sounds decidedly new age and vacuous, but would anything appease the staff, beyond entirely subsidized artistic lifestyles?

And this is with state subsidies for French press, so all taxpayers pay whether they actually read any of these titles or not.
