L' ARBRE, LE MAIRE ET LA MéDIATHèQUE
Baum, der Bürgermeister und die Mediathek
The village's rich, well-meaning Mayor wants a multimedia center to be built, but he is fiercely opposed by a local schoolteacher who is incensed that its construction would necessitate destroying an ancient tree that is a natural landmark. The Mayor and the teacher are interviewed by an ecologically sensitive journalist who understands all sides of the issue. When her article is published, no one is pleased, including the journalist, who finds her piece severely cut and slanted around a provocative cover illustration.
