Le Figaro was originally founded as a satire newspaper in 1826 and is France's oldest newspaper still in print. It has been printed every day since 1866 and is considered France's most important conservative paper. Owned by the arms business Serge Dassault, Le Figaro is frequently embroiled in controversies over editorial independence. The newspaper had close ties to the Sarkozy government.
