Some of the more eagle eyed of you may have noticed the adding of a new image in the upper right hand corner. It refers to the launch of a new online news broadcasting organisation that hopes to be more inclusive than the terrestrial media publishers that tend to focus solely on the medium of television to get the news out. The video showcases their initiative.

A FRENCH EYE ON WORLD NEWS Gleamed from a pdf file from FRANCE 24.
FRANCE 24 is the first French international news channel to broadcast on a 24/7 basis. In December 2006, it offers a French perspective on world events.

FRANCE 24 is characterized by respect for diversity and attention to political and cultural differences and identities. It offers an in-depth analysis of current events, aiming to uncover what lies beneath the surface and reveal what the public is not used to seeing, knowing or understanding. It also gives special attention to culture and lifestyle.

FRANCE 24 is deploying a decisive and bold multilingual strategy. Its programs are broadcast on two channels, one in French, one in English, with Arabic scheduled for 2007. Spanish will follow. Free and unencrypted, the network broadcasts via the various platforms of the digital universe : satellite, cable, ADSL, Internet... It places Internet at the heart of its strategy with a trilingual site as of its launch.

FRANCE 24 is targeting an audience of opinion leaders. Initially, it is broadcast in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the cities of New York and Washington D.C.Its coverage will ultimately extend worldwide.

FRANCE 24 brings a fresh new look at international developments, with a view to ensuring greater pluralism in a multi-faceted world where information plays a decisive role. To this end, it has been endowed with the necessary resources - both financial and human -to guarantee its editorial independence and enable it to offer new and original reporting.
