Daily newspaper

Libération was founded under the aegis of philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre in 1973 and is considered France's leading leftwing daily. Libération is known for its eye-catching front pages. A shrinking readership has plunged the newspaper into major financial difficulties. In 2016 telecommunications magnate Patrick Drahi rescued the paper from financial ruin and incorporated it into his mobile communications company SFR.
