Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My response (by email):
Thanks for that, Charles.  But are there not sufficient ways to get info from Paris without basing a reporter there?  I appreciate a large part of your role is "interpreting" and mediating French news for a British audience.  Contextualising info and "translating" it for a different audience is a valid form of work - every writer does it to a certain extent - but does that mean that people will be prepared to pay for it in future?  Many traditional news orgs will undoubtedly go to the wall - unless they can find lucrative niches and "value added" services people will pay for.  Travel agents haven't all gone bust either, but I'm not sure it's a market I would be buying into right now!
