Monde, Le
(French; "The World")

Daily newspaper published in Paris, one of the most important and widely respected newspapers in the world.

It was established in 1944, just after the German army left the city, as an independent organ free of government or private subsidies. Covering national and world news in depth from the start, it soon earned a reputation for accuracy and independence. Its writers present their own views, with the result that the paper reveals no consistent ideological outlook, causing it to earn both praise and criticism from every part of the French political spectrum.

▪ French newspaper
      (French: “The World”), daily newspaper published in Paris, one of the most important and widely respected newspapers in the world.

      The newspaper was established in 1944—as soon as the German army had quit Paris but while World War II continued—on orders of the new government of General Charles de Gaulle as a means of providing a respected voice for France. It was printed on the presses of the defunct Le Temps, and a prewar correspondent of that paper, Hubert Beuve-Méry, was appointed its editor and director. He insisted on, and was granted, the right to operate Le Monde as an independent organ, with no government or private subsidies and with the right to formulate its own editorial policies. By the end of its first year Le Monde's accuracy and independence were widely noted and it had attained a circulation in excess of 150,000 copies.

      From its start, Le Monde has covered national and world news in depth and analyzed it closely. Its writers have the freedom to present their own views, with the result that Le Monde reveals no unified policies or consistent ideological outlook. Its independence, which never wavered from its founding, despite early and grave financial worries, has brought it denunciation at one time or another from every part of the French political spectrum.
