France 24 Launched Too Soon?

The UK’s Press Gazette has an interview with France 24’s managing director Jean-Yves Bonsergent in which he defends criticism that France 24 was launched to soon.

Media critics have noted that France 24’s production values are lower than its competitors, and that a few more months might have made for a smoother launch.

Bonsergent counters that “”We are working on that really quickly in order that it is solved and I think most of our problems have been.”


Personally I think France 24 does have lower prodution values than its competitors, but that’s not surprising given its budget. So long as it continues to improve, what the channel looked like in December of 2006 won’t matter for long.
