I am American and French by passport, a former New Yorker, a journalist and a writer. I moved back to Paris eight years ago to help launch a broadcast news network called France 24, which I headed up for some time, and which still thrives. These days, I consult on and develop content projects, and teach journalism.
The Franco-American friendship is long and illustrious, but as deeply ambivalent today as it has always been. Each half loves to think certain pre-conceived things about the other. Some of these things are sometimes true, of course. I try to nuance the received ideas and introduce a few new ones.
I hope you enjoy it. Please do let me know your thoughts and views.
