Not only is a bill concerning this matter still awaiting its second reading in the National Assembly but there has also been a steady increase in judicial attempts to get journalists to reveal their sources.”The video showed President Sarkozy in the studio of France 3’s 19/20 programme on 30 June 2008 expressing irritation with a technician for his perceived impoliteness. It became available almost immediately on Rue89 and other websites and was seen by hundreds of thousands of Internet users.After France 3 filed a complaint alleging “theft, receiving stolen property and piracy” on 8 July, the Paris prosecutor’s office immediately asked the BRDP to investigate. At the same time, the France 3 management launched an internal investigation.
