The Canard versus the Mass Press

(p.51) 3 Unstuffing Skulls
War, Memory, and the Politics of Humor

Allen Douglas

University of California Press

This chapter records the second primary vocation that the Canard took from the Great War: the critic of the French mass press. This chapter shows that the Canard was very hard on the patriotic press, and regularly mocked it and the way its leaders had abandoned their earlier antimilitarism or had avoided military service. Aside from criticizing the mass press, the Canard also taught its readers how and why the mass press worked. The discussion also introduces Maurice Barrès and Gustave Hervé.

Keywords:   critic, mass press, patriotic press, antimilitarism, military service, Maurice Barrès, Gustave Hervé
