French television needs young blood

Hakim El-Karoui and Jean-Pascal Picy, senior lecturers at the Institute of Political Studies in Paris, write in a joint opinion about the arrival of a black presenter on the primetime newscast of the private channel TF1. They argue that the main characteristic of Harry Roselmack is not the colour of his skin, but his youth. "Indeed, at 33, Harry Roselmack seems like someone from another planet on France's political, economic and mediatic landscape. ... At this age - and regardless of the talents of those in question - it is considered the proper thing to do to be patient and bide your time until the day might come when the old guard is good and ready to step aside. The overrepresentation of fifty-something, sixty-something and seventy-something in high-level posts seems to be one of the defining features of our society, at least as much as the under-representation of diversity."
