Le Monde

Daily newspaper


The first edition of the daily paper Le Monde in 1944 consisted of a single page printed on both sides. Today it is regarded as France's most influential newspaper. It was sold to private investors in 2010 after running into financial difficulties. Prior to this journalists and employees had a shareholder majority. Since 2013, the editors have focussed on digital development. Le Monde also publishes a daily business supplement.
