L.A.-based French radio journalist Emmanuelle Richard has resumed her bilingual blog with a new design, following a long hiatus. She writes that the break was partly due to the insatiable French demand for news from California — i.e., she's been working a lot — and partly due to her disenchantment over the increasingly ugly tone that has made many blogs unreadable.
I was also disappointed by the petty and vicious wars between bloggers, and a new crop of heinous commentaries sprouting everywhere. The U.S. presidential campaign is not improving the atmosphere on this side of the pond. Man has rarely seen bloggers so divided and polarized, and some blogs that I used to love have become political credos.
In this new iteration, the English for every entry appears just below the French.
