Abstract

From the second half of the XIXth century until the 1980s, in spite of occasionally strong impact, political scandals have been scarce in France. The interweaving spheres of the politicians, the media, and the judiciary protected the former from dangerous attacks from the others. In the 1980s, however, internal change in the three fields gave birth to a new configuration. The judiciary and the media emancipated themselves from political interference and their new autonomy progressively enabled them to put the politicians on trial, following a trend which seems as irreversible in France as elsewhere. Politicians are becoming legally accountable for their behaviour just as any citizen is.
