French Television in the Age of Multiculturalism
A 1990 poll conducted for FR 3, “La Marche du siècle,” and Le Nouvel Observateur, ranked immigration as one of France’s greatest problems, second only to unemployment. Nearly two-thirds of those polled felt that there were too many immigrants in France.1 The French media have undoubtedly played a central role in shaping widely held negative views of immigrants and diverse minority groups. Yet much of the research on the treatment of immigrants and minorities in the media has centered on the press. The role of television remains largely unexplored.2
