1. Billboard + Bowers/French Elections

Audio for this story from Weekend Edition Saturday is not available.

FROM PARIS, WHERE THE FRENCH PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IS TO BE HELD SUNDAY, NPR'S ANDY BOWERS REPORTS THAT LIKE AMERICANS, THE FRENCH PICK THEIR LEADERS BASED ON WHAT THEY LEARN ABOUT THEM IN NEWSPAPERS AND ON TELEVISION. BUT WHAT THE FRENCH SEE IN THE MEDIA IS NOT AT ALL LIKE WHAT WE SEE IN AMERICAN ELECTIONS.
