On October 2 French President Nicolas Sarkozy initiated a debate on possible solutions to the crisis facing the press. The daily Le Monde comments on today's media crisis: "The year 2008 will be remembered as a year of fundamental change for the press, with a drop in sales, ... fewer readers and decreased advertising revenues.
