In its six years of existence, investigative site MEDIAPART has revealed all manner of scandals, including tax evasion on a huge scale by influential people in France, misappropriation of public funds, political corruption, abuse of patronage and other wrongdoing.
This experience has provided MEDIAPART with a reputation for fearless revelations of secrets in high places. But it has also severely embarrassed the rich and powerful. Today the on-line newspaper is being hammered by the French tax authorities, in what looks like a campaign to force it out of business.
MEDIAPART publisher Edwy Plenel has agreed to speak about his experience in this area, and to share with NUJ Paris members and guests his commitment to journalistic ideals of justice, scrutiny of public figures and exposure of malpractice.
This will be an enjoyable evening, with a wonderful LIVE ROMA BAND discovered by NUJ Paris chair Chris Myant in the "sans papier bidonvilles" of the French capital.
