Arrêt sur Images
How many of you ever watched Arrêt sur Images on France 5? It was a wonderful program dedicated to reviewing and analyzing television programs on a given subject. They usually gave themselves a more than a week, so it was not always the latest unfolding story. This gave their analysis a decent perspective. Daniel Schneidermann was (and still is) the leader of the team and since the show was not always politically correct, he got in trouble and the show was pulled.
There was an outcry of protest, a petition, etc. They've set up a website and will begin programming from that in January. Until then, they are still reporting and calling for subscriptions. Take a look: http://arretsurimages.net
