Libération

France

Description

Libération, popularly known as Libé, is a daily newspaper in France, founded in Paris by Jean-Paul Sartre and Serge July in 1973 in the wake of the protest movements of May 1968. Originally a far-left newspaper, it has undergone a number of shifts during the 1980s and 1990s to take the social democrat (centre-left) position, as Serge July puts it, "the equation of Libération consisted in combining counter-culture and political radicalism”. It was the first French daily to have a website. It had a circulation of about 101,000 in 2013.
