In Geneva there are three French newspapers – 24 hours, Le Martin and The Tribune.
All the page one splashes feature mostly blokes – when they aren’t
pictures of freeways and freeway signs. (For some inexplicable reason
pictures of freeways and freeway signs are to the papers here as a croc
story is to The Northern Territory News.) Women virtually don’t
exist in terms of print or pics. And the French are very parochial on
cultural issues, so it’s rare to have much of a mention of anything
non-Swiss or French.

So imagine how astonishing it is that Le
Martin SPLASHED with a front page Kylie pic and story today. That
Aussie girl is big news.
