No Sunday Addiction

February 1980
National Review;2/22/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 4, p208
The article reports on the collapse of the newspapers "Figaro-Dimanche" and "France-Soir-Dimanche" in Paris, France. These were Sunday versions of the well-known dailies and were launched only a few months ago. Their purpose was to capture the newspaper market. These new entrants in the French Sunday field were supposed to swamp the old warhorse, but what happened was just opposite. The "Journal du Dimanche" kept its 300,000 throughout the country, and the newcomers folded. Several efforts are being made by the newspaper companies to save their newspapers.
