There is one by Karl Popper and John Condry from 95, “La television:
un danger pour la democatie”. They basicly say that TV is bad but with
a little bit of “regulation” can turn out to be a good thing.
There is also the number 27 of “Maniere de Voir” published by Le Monde
Diplomatique which is dedicated to the media: “Media et controle des
esprit”. This is more generic, but TV plays a major role in the mass
manipulation. “If you repeat a lie everyday, it become true”.
