La révolution ne sera plus télévisée : Internet, information et démocratie

Abstract : While traditional media are often accused of downgrading the quality of information and political debates, the Internet is usually presented as the leaven of a new democracy. Thanks to its functionalities it is said to transform web surfers into enlightened citizens, to offer real discussion forums and to establish a direct dialogue, without any interference, between the government and the governed. However, does such a vision of a democracy revitalized through the power of technology correspond to the political usage of the Internet over the past ten years ? The article tries to answer this question on the basis of the various surveys and studies realized in France and abroad about this topic.
