Adulating in the French internet media is an odd thing. It came late, and arrived awkawardly, yet it’s stellar compared to the Internet-Journalism fare of all of its’ neighbors apart from Britain. Never mind the fact that the list is largely headed by knock-offs of the paragons of pandering in America, Slate and Huffington Post.
The strangest thing about the issue, is that it’s being delved into this month by a double-antithesis of the nouveaux médias is coming straight from a dead-tree outfit whose mainstay has always been covering the one-way, non-interactive boob tube.
In that light, expect a domestic version of Mad Men in about 5-7 years.
