The article discusses the findings of a study on newspaper and magazine readership in France in 2007. The study, which was conducted by Audipresse, reported that readership of French daily newspapers increased by 1.9 percent, while magazine readership increased by 1.2 percent. According to Xavier Dordon, director general of Audipresse, the readership increase is attributed to the interest in national elections and reflected gains in previous years.
