Title of thesis: The press, the president and the problem with disinformation - French journalistic narratives on the disinformation phenomenon during Emmanuel Macron's 2017-2022 presidency
Feb 2020 – Feb 2023
Summary of research
With Emmanuel Macron seeking to grab hold of the disinformation agenda, critically through media regulation, a first objective is to analyse the narratives used by journalists for the discursive control of this phenomenon. By focusing on metajournalistic narratives, a second objective is to examine how journalists seek to influence the debate on media regulation through the framing of their role and responsibilities in the face of disinformation.
