Hollywood pratique une discrimination culturelle à l'échelle planétaire

Christophe Germann, lundi le 13 octobre 2003 – 2003/10/13

While UNESCO debates preserving cultural diversity, Ms Sandra Vinciguerra reports in Geneva’s Le Courrier on comments by Geneva attorney and director Christophe Germann. Mr. Germann denounces the complacency of a certain press that always has room for more coverage of Hollywood blockbusters. Mr. Germann also denounces the influence of these big productions, which he views as a threat to diversity of opinion. According to Mr. Germann, this rampant phenomenon jeopardizes ”both journalistic criticism and state subsidies to publishing and film.” This concern has led him to file a complaint with the Swiss Press Council.
