Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A casual scanning of their archives gives me a couple hundred or so blog posts, interviews or tribunes with Mr Artus in the magazine over the past couple of years.

One short article this year, in February. "couple hundred or so" must be hyperbole..?

There probably are people in the PS (on the left of?) who find Alter Eco congenial, and there probably are PS sympathizers who work there. That's a long way from your hyperbole. It's overall a useful mag that has gained readership (especially among students, offering different perspectives from the standard liberal garbage) after starting out in the '80s as a small workers' co-operative, (which it still is). Its general tone on Europe is very far from Hollande's ducking of the issues, and the main reason evoked in the current number for why everything wrong in France is not entirely Hollande's fault, is Europe-imposed austerity (yeah, I know, he should do something about that).

I'm not out to defend Artus on his record. The point here is that he is a well-known pundit, and what he's saying here is sufficently correct, generally unspoken, and surprising coming from a well-known pundit, to be emphasized. Hence the diary. Of course, little or no coverage in the French media.

I count 212 articles, blogposts and interviews in the archives doing a simple search on his name...

Articles by Patrick Artus are almost all on Page 1 of 10 in the search results. The overwhelming majority of the items are simple references to his name within articles written by others.

As I'm a well-known pink-green traitor to the working class, I've been a subscriber to Alter Eco since the late '80s. I can assure you that Artus is very far from being a regular or typical presence among the writers there.
