Médias français : le crowdfunding au service du pluralisme ?

Abstract : The news media are experiencing a crisis, both economic (declining revenues from sales and advertising, uncertain economic models in the digital age) and ethical (growing importance of non-media players in the capital of information companies). In this context, crowdfunding appears to be an answer to the two elements of this crisis: it would make it possible to find an alternative financing and guarantee the independence of editorial offices. Be it launching, developing or saving a media, our survey of French media companies shows that crowdfunding is a current means of resolving a much older quest for “clean money” that ensures the production of information in compliance with journalism ethics. But while participatory financing makes it possible to maintain a certain degree of pluralism, it often remains confined to niche, marginal or complementary media which it is far from being able to provide the entire funding.
