Codes to express the density or poverty of the subjects treated, the depth or superficiality of the content, or the calm or violence of the words and visuals.

Among them: Le Canard Enchainé, Charlie hebdo, Elle, L’Express, Le Figaro, Libération, Le Monde, Le Monde mag, Le Nouvel Observateur, Paris Match, Le Point, Télérama, Voici.
